Care for a shoulder mount:

1: With a sharp knife, cut the skin as illustrated in the images below.

2: Peel the skin forward up to the ears and jaw exposing the head/neck junction. Cut into the neck, and separate head from carcass approximately 3 inches down from the junction.

3: Place the skin and head in a plastic bag and freeze immediately or keep cool and get it to the taxidermist as soon as possible.

 

Birds:

Choose prime specimens only. Do not gut the bird. Rinse any blood off of the feathers with water. Wrap in a plastic bag, avoiding any damage to the feathers, especially the tail. Freeze immediately or get to the taxidermist.

 

Fish:

Do not gut the fish. Take immediately to taxidermist fresh, or wrap in a wet towel or rags and freeze in a plastic bag.

 

Small Mammals:

Do not gut or skin. Freeze in a plastic bag immediately.
