Care of Animal

The quality of your finished mount is determined by the way you treat the specimen in the field.

In the view of the many factors which have a very definite effect on the final results of tanning and/or mounting, such as primeness, general condition of specimen, climatic conditions, and lack of knowledge and facilities in the field by the individual, we assume no responsibility or guarantee to the results of any finished specimen.

  • Antlered mammals, do not cut throat. Cut behind the antlers.
  • Shoulder mounts, cut hide well behind the forelegs
  • Wet skins, do not place in plastic bag, use ventilated cloth
  • Wet skins, keep as cool as possible, prefer freezing
  • Wet skins, do not salt.

Mounting Information

Each wildlife art display is unique & one of a kind, no two pieces are ever alike. The BASICS (general presentation) of the piece is discussed initially with each client prior to start of project. However, due to condition of specimen, presentation approach, & overall composition, Darius will request "Artistic Liberty" during the Taxidermy process, to achieve the best outcome for the mount & client.
