Taxidermy question

My taxidermist told me my 2011 buck will be done in two weeks. Trouble is he told me that his basement was under six feet of water last September for three days while he was out of state. Trouble is he says my hide was under water for three whole days. He says there is nothing to worry about because he put the hide right in a freezer where it has been ever since. Is my mount really going to be alright?

Re: Taxidermy question

I wonder how hard it would have been to remove things from the basement as the water slowly started to rise...Makes you wonder..As to the question of a hide being soaked for three days?...Let us know Mike!

Re: Taxidermy question

From post it seems like the taxi was out of town when water was coming in.

He was indeed. And the person who he left in charge of checking on his home dropped the ball. I don't know if I'm more concerned about the three days underwater or the cape being in a freezer since Sept. but I just want to know if there are potential problems I should be aware of.

Re: Taxidermy question

Your taxidermist would know while mounting up your mount if there's going to be any issues with it.
If the hair does'nt start slipping during the mounting process and holds up till completion then it should be good to go. Provided he is honest with you when you pick it up.
Note: Just check when do go to pick up you mount that there is'nt any bald spots or loose hair falling out.

Re: Taxidermy question

As a follow up on this thread I've picked up my buck mount and it looks fantastic. No hair falling out issues or anything and he gave me a lifetime guarantee on it!

I'll have to get that up. I didn't even think about it. Thanks for the reminder.
