    Question 5 months ago on Introduction

    My neighbor boy’s mother made him keep his deer and hog mounts in the basement. Now there’s mold on them and she’s making him get rid of them. Is there any way to save them? He’s put tons of time, effort and money into them,( he’s 16 or 17 I think ) I’d appreciate any helpful suggestions to fix this issue for both of them.

    They look like you take good care of them. :) I miss seeing all the water buffalo when I lived in Thailand.
