~Mammals

1. Congratulations!!
2. Do not hang by neck or drag! TAKE TO TAXIDERMIST BEFORE YOU TAKE TO BUTCHER. 5 DAYS LATER AND NOT FROZEN WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF CAPE!! I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!! I DO NOT CARE IF ITS COLD OUT! ITS NOT COLD LIKE IN YOUR FREEZER!
3. After your trophy is taken, let animal cool before placing in freezer.
4. Wrap securely in trash bag or plastic bag.
5. ANIMALS IN FREEZER FOR MORE THAN 6 MONTHS MAY CAUSE FREEZER BURNING, may also cost you extra at the taxidermists.


~Fish

1. Take pictures of fish to show colors tones immediately after caught.
2. Wet an old t-shirt/towel, and wrap the entire fish in it, tail and all.
3. Place in a trash bag and lay flat in freezer.


~Waterfowl/Upland Game Birds

1. Try not to shoot an excessive amount of times!
2. I can fix ANYTHING! Holes, broken wings, legs and beaks!
3. Lay all feathers flat/smooth, and wrap feet in wet paper towel.
4. Place bird in a nylon sock/tights and place in a bag, then into freezer.
5. If you shoot a turkey and it has brilliant colors on its head, take pictures immediately. The heads will fade!


~Whitetails

1. Do not drag backwards, or through thorny, picky brush.
2. Place on a tarp or on a quad to drag out of woods.
3. Hang by antlers, not the neck.
4. If you cut the skin, cut in mid-center of back and belly all the way around, leaving the top of the legs attached.
5. Skin up the neck as far as possible, then saw the neck vertebre off.
6. Make sure cape is cooled before placing in a trash bag in the freezer.
7. DO NOT HANG FOR MORE THEN TWO DAYS NO MATTER HOW COLD IT IS OUTSIDE!
8. REMEMBER: Hunting guides and butchers don't alway's leave enough skin for taxidermists, and sometimes make extra cuts in the skin.
