Help on european mount

7 posts in this topic

I was given the other day a mount to do and I'm running into a little issue. It is 2 yrs old and the meat is gone off of it obviously but the skin is still on. Any tips for getting the skin off? I haven't tired anything yet so I don't know how hard it will be to remove or not but I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas. I was told pry it off and it should crack and brake off and I've also been told to soak it in water till it seperates. Any ideas?

I have soaked them in water and that softened it up enough to cut it off. But, it was not 2 years old but I believe that it should still work.

I've got one that I'd like to clean up and did a little research on that. Seems like either water or water mixed with fabric softener were the choices most suggested...

    • Trumps pulls even in Minnesota.  But hey your vote doesn't matter here.  Not poking fun at Dave as I thought what he said was logic in that the democratic candidate would win hands down.
    • Uh oh, just saw a junco at the ranch under the feeders a couple hours ago. This is serious. First we lose the hummingbirds early, now the juncos are back. It'll be an ugly winter. Get yer wool coats everybody! Wool coats fer sale! 
    • I hear ya , I just eat a Montana elk tag for $880 . I could go back with the rifle but it would be more money and time off from home   
    • That is amazing!! I especially like the dovetails!! And the hand made flasher holder!! That has me seriously thinking... just what i need, another project before winter gets here.  Seriously, that's awesome!
    • Who said anything about victim? We have terrible representation, I am taking responsibility by trying to change it. Sure beats picking some party your parents voted for and blindly sticking with them your whole life. That isn't a poke at you Del, just the way things are.
    • I like them in Spring when the water is still cold. An original in white works well for me, usually fished on 15lb mono. This year I mostly used a Strike King blade minnow as a trailer.
    • Just ask her..... It's because you want more of the Obama policies and more.  It's because she is a woman and you want to show you are not a bigot. It's because Trump will destroy the country and probably the planet.   /sarcasm for the reading impaired...
    • You don't deserve better because they got nominated by voters who chose them instead of one of the other possibilities.  What did you do to get one of the others chosen?   If you just watched TV and went to work and were not involved in the process, then you got what you deserved, as did the rest of the country.   You are not a victim.  No mysterious cabal did this to you.   We are all responsible and that includes you.    Is that so hard to accept?
