Xtreme Taxidermy Field Care Tips...
To preparing fresh caught fish for taxidermy, wrap fish in a wet towel or old t-shirt and then wrap in a plastic bag. Make sure the fins are flat against the fish to avoid breakage. Place fish in freezer until ready for processing.
When preparing deer for taxidermy, you must consider what type of mount you desire (antler, head, head with shoulder or rug) which will determine how the deer must be cleaned. If you are not sure, please call us before you begin.
