Re: need help!!

Call the guy up that did it. I don't think it should be doing all of that. He might fix it back to normal for you.

Re: need help!!

I agree. Take it back to the taxidermist that mounted it. It should not come apart like you described.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: need help!!

It sounds like dry preservative. If that is the case there is little that can be done but you should still take it back to the taxidermist that did it for you. If it was tanned the problem might be in where you have it displayed (near heat source, etc?). Send me a PM telling me who did it for you and I should be able to tell you whether it was tanned or DP'd.

Paul,

How can you tell what kind of tan it is if he give you the name?

Just curious.
