how to prepare a animal for taxidermy? Answered

i was wondering if anything is need for when you go out hunting and you would like to get the animals head or body taxidermied so you can mount it on a wall so the animal does not rot. thx.


Search Instructables for taxidermy (it's there!) and improvise for the larger mount.

Google will help for the inner piece if you don't want to carve one up yourself : )

For a head mount, usually you freeze the head and pelt intact. If you want a full body mount the taxidermist may want you to just gut it and then freeze it intact.
You need to get directions from whichever taxidermist will do the job first though. The may have a different method.

Totally agree with Burf.
