Don't shoot it in the head. Try to keep it as blood free as you can. Try to keep it as dry as you can. Don't gut it. Don't let it lay in the back of your truck for days showing it off. Hope this helps.
A simple .22 through the lungs is easy, and easy to repair and conceal. Plus it saves the skull if you want to get that cleaned as well. It is important to get a bobcat cooled down as quickly as possible, then freeeze it whole if you cant get it to the taxidermist. Check out the PTA website for proper handling proceedures. http://www.pataxidermy.com
Potter bound I assume your trapping because you said you would shoot it in the head.Bobcats are known to choke easily.Just put a catch pole around its neck and tighten it up.Very fast.That's why it's recommended to not use a catch pole on a cat you're going to release.
