Proper care of your mount is important to avoid tanning and mounting procedure problems and provide a quality mount. Preparation is dependant on the temperature. The warmer it is the quicker and more you must do to protect your trophy. Complete skinning and salting might be needed in the field if the weather is hot.

  • Take care when dragging your trophy from the woods. Do not drag against the hair patterns.
  • When hanging your trophy, do so by the hind legs. Do not hang by the neck.
  • Freezing your trophy is the best short-term solution, but due to freezer burn, your trophy should only be stored in a freezer temporarily. Double wrap your bird, mammal, skin, or fish in plastic as soon as you can and freeze it immediately.
  • If freezing is not an option, Rub non-iodized salt into the cape, use a lot of it. Lay the cape out flat to drain.
  • Unless you are freezing your trophy, NEVER store it in a plastic bag.
  • Keep your trophy from sunlight, heat and moisture to prevent decomposition.
  • Get your trophy to Wildlife Studio as soon as possible.

If you are ever in doubt about any of the field-care procedures, please feel free to email us.
