About

It is pretty simple.  I do European  Mounts and cleanings with  dermestid beetles. We all spend valuable time in the woods  doing  our favorite activities in  hunting many different species and I want to help  create  your lasting memory  of a big hunt.......economically. 

Many outdoor shops and taxidermist  like to provide a  spectrum  of products and different service components to your trophy.  Some shops are excellent  in providing  great artistic finishes and some others fall  short of that being stretched too thin.  I stick to  cleaning, whitening, and mounting in a simple but fashionable way.   No boiling or macerating to potentially destroy delicate bones or possibly  alter the size of your animal !

Preparation


LIST


  • Keep head free of insects.
  • Freeze  skull  as soon as possible.
  • Do NOT salt the head either with skin nor without.  If salting is neccessary for prevention of fly contamination--MAKE SURE you let me know prior to arrival.
  • If you cant freeze the whole head right away, cape out the face in a clean pest free area the keep in cold storage until it gets to me.

 

 

  • At all possible place in 2 large ziplock bags AND large plastic bag--then place  in deep freezer.
  • Keeping the  sealed bag in ice will help if on   a hunt.
  • Cut out the tounge  and as much of the neck of the specimen .
  • Common sense
  • If packaging for  shipment- do not use the  Post Master. Fed-Ex or UPS. 
  • When shipping  protect the antlers with  styrofoam, paper or plastic pipe to secure in shipment.    Use a Rubermaid Tote not a cardboard box  for best protection.
