can antlers be switched on shoulder mount, I have 2 nice bucks I got- wanted to have mounted but the capes went bad so rather than go thru buying a cape and having them done at a taxidermist, I bought 2 shoulder mounts off Ebay is it fairly easy-can I do it myself or how much would it cost me to have this done.
i am not exactly sure...i saw the completed project and the taxidermist i am friends with explained that the mount came in butchered and he ultimately had to buy a whole new cape. if i remember correctly he salvaged the form but i may be wrong.
You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?
I was kicking the idea around the biggest problem I can see is softening up the hide around the antlers and down the back of the head getting it plyable enough to work with. only thing I came up with is soaking the top of the head in a pickling solution, just wondering if that will hurt it or make the hair slip.
