Whitetail European Mount

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know a reasonable taxidermist that will do a european mount. I've got a decent 8 point buck that I would like to do this with.

I'd rather not have to spend over $100 to do it either.

I just thought it would be something a little different.

you can get a kit to do it yourself and it is really easy. i got my kit at cabelas for about $40-50. you could do about 3 deer with one and yes they are different, but very nice

I'd personally rather not mess with it. I think it involves boiling the skull and peeling off the fat/tissue. Not really my cup of tea.

I'm fine with paying a guy a couple bucks so I don't have to do it.

i shot a nice 9 pointer a couple years back and thats when it was cold during deer season. i put the head in a bag and put it in the freezer until spring. when the ground thawd out i dug a hole and put it in there for about 3 months. then i put it in the lake for a couple weeks. when it was done it had that old European look to it, it wasnt like bleach white but it looked good.

I fleshed out my skull last night... with a little effort you can do it yourself. Just make sure to stay in the garage... the women aren't real fond of the process in the kitchen. I just scrubbed some bleach on it afterwards & I think it turned out pretty good. If you want another place to compare prices in the St. Cloud area... google beetle my bones. I just got an email from him this morning... if you want more info on pricing, let me know.
