Avoid activities that compromise the
quality of your trophy:

¾Don’t drag your trophy – avoid hair loss!
¾Keep the animal cool – work in the shade!
¾Clean blood off the fur!
¾Transport on ice!
¾Deliver to the taxidermist ASAP, or Freeze it!
Leave plenty of cape for
the taxidermist to work
with. Cut the cape from
behind the front legs .
After you make
the circular cut

front legs,
Cut down the back of
the legs. Center your
cut and don’t cut into
the arm pit.
