UUUUGHHH! advice needed...

I am a beginner and mounted several deer this winter. I was working on my last shoulder mount and I realized I have the wrong hide! The correct hide is already dried on another manikin!

If I can, I really need to put the correct hides on the manikins. The hides are soft tanned, so I was thinking about soaking the hide in water to loosen the glue.

Am I wasting my time? Or can I make this work?

Re: UUUUGHHH! advice needed...

i wish i could help since no one answered you yet but i dont know! would it be easier to switch the antlers? since they are fairly fresh i would think you you could rehydrate the hide, but wait for a professional to answer before doing it.

Good answer Jen. Either live with your mistake or switch the antlers.
