A great mount starts with proper field care

Caping for a shoulder mount.

 

After you have legally harvested your trophy it is very important NOT  to cut into the brisket (chest) or neck area. Make all cuts behind the  front shoulder. Try not to drag your trophy as this will damage the hide  and or hair. Remember it is better to have to much hide then not  enough.

 

1. Cut the hide around the body at approximately the mid-way point of  the rib cage behind the front shoulders. Cut around each front leg just  above the knee. Connect the cuts by cutting up the BACK of the leg and  angle toward the belly to the mid-section cut. (Figure 2A &2B)

 

2. Skin your trophy up to the head neck junction and then remove the  head from the carcass. Leave approximately 3 inches of neck attached to  the head. (Figure 3)


 

3. If you are unable to deliver your trophy to us immediately, wrap  the hide and head in a heavy plastic bag and place it in a freezer until  you are able to bring the trophy to us for mounting.

Birds

 Do  not field dress the bird. Do not wring the bird's neck. Rinse off any  blood or dirt with water taking care not to damage any feathers. Make  sure that the wings are tucked and that all the feathers are laying  flat, then place the bird head first into a pair of pantie hose. This  will protect the feathers and help cool the bird. If you are unable to  deliver your bird to us immediately, place the bird in a plastic bag and  place it in a freezer until you are able to bring the bird to us for  mounting. 

Small Mammals

 Coyotes,  bobcats, etc. It is very important to cool the hide as soon as possible  as these animals can spoil quickly and ruin the hide. Do not  field dress your trophy. If you are unable to deliver your trophy  immediately to us then wrap your trophy in a plastic bag and place it in  a freezer as soon as possible.  

Life-Size Big Game

 Contact us to discuss the type of pose you are requesting as this will determine the best type of skinning method. 

Fish

 From  the Wild to the Wall Taxidermy only offers Reproduction fish mounts.  All that is required is two measurements, the length of the fish and the  girth of the fish. Good colored photos immediately after you catch the  fish will assist in producing the most realistic reproduction mount of  your trophy. A fish will loose its coloration shortly after being caught  so the sooner you are able to take the pictures after the catch the  better they will show the true markings.
