Skull Only Mounts
All skulls can be finished in any of the four ways described above under European Mounts. Only the upper portion of the skull is cleaned and finished at the standard price. The bottom jaw can be cleaned, finished, and wired to the upper portion for additional cost.
A typical antler mount is a skull cap combined with a foam form finished with a black felt and a gold accent rope. *Custom colors are available at additional Cost.
In the event that your antlers have been left outside and have been bleached by the sun or a DIY European Mount has gone wrong, we can restore those antlers to a natural finish.
Feet are skinned, fleshed, and cured before mounting on a foam form. This is done for long term preservation and avoidance of bugs and rot. They are mounted “Feet Only” with the hardware to mount on a board. If you would like a gun rack or other custom item we can select one and create your piece for material and handling cost only.
Our standard method for tanning furs is a cased skin. This means there is no vertical cut up the breastbone of the animal. Furs can be tanned feet on or off at the clients discretion.
If you have an idea for a creation that fits outside of this scope of work, give us a call and we will do everything in our power to accommodate your needs.
Emerson Dolby Taxidermy is not responsible for improper field care of any species by the client. For best results, please contact us immediately after harvest for further instruction.
