Caping for a Shoulder Mount
PROPER FIELD CARE
TESTIMONIAL'S
1.  With a sharp knife slit the hide circling the
body behind the shoulder at approximately the
mid-way point of the rib cage behind the
front legs. Slit the skin around the legs
just above the knees. An additional slit will be
needed from the back of the leg and
joining the body cut behind the legs
(Figure 2A and 2B).

2.   Peel the skin forward up to the ears and jaw
exposing the head/neck junction. Cut into the
neck approximately three inches down from this
junction. Circle the neck cutting down to the
spinal column. After this cut is complete,
grasp the antler bases and twist the head
off the neck. This should allow the hide to be
rolled up and put in a freezer until transported
to the taxidermist. These cuts should allow
ample hide for the taxidermist to work with in
mounting. Remember, the taxidermist can cut off
excess hide but he can't add what he doesn't have.

Note: When field dressing a trophy to be mount-
ed, don't cut into the brisket (chest) or neck area.
If blood gets on the hide to be mounted, wash it
off with snow or water as soon as possible. Also,
avoid dragging the deer out of the woods with a
rope. Place it on a sled, rickshaw, or 4-wheeler.
The rope, rocks, or a broken branch from a dead-
fall can easily damage the fur or puncture the
hide. If you do need to drag it out with a rope,
attach the rope to the base of the antlers and drag
your trophy carefully.
