question to a taxidermist

i have my first buck i killed with a bow(a few years ago) ruined a few months ago by my chocolate lab who decided to eat the face and ear off of the mount. it was my fault for leaving the head on the floor when i was moving stuff in my house. anyways i was wondering if i needed another deer head to mount the rack to or is there something else that can be done. its bad enough that it happend and it ruined the original but im still proud of my kill and want to display it. whats the best route i should take on this situation?

You will need a new cape and have to remount it. Most taxidermists have capes on hand or get obtain one for you. Expect to pay between $50 and $150 for the cape (depending on size of the deer) plus the cost of the mount.

Re: question to a taxidermist

thanks i would like to use my own cape. that way i can at least say i fixed the deer with a deer that i shot. i will wait till i shoot one that isnt big enough that i would mount and use it. last year would have been perfect because i shot a 6 point. 4 on one side 2 on the other that was about the same size and age of my deer. oh well i will keep it aside and wait for it. thanks
