Deer and Gameheads / Re: Hide pulled around burr

I think I'd tell my customer to hang tight. Meanwhile I'd let every bow hunter I knew that I needed some repair parts. Have your customer do the same. Don't know when your season starts, but ours does  in a week.  I'll bet you get a specimen for a patch reasonably quickly. While I've admittedly never done it, I would think you could get good results relatively easily. My $.02

Deer and Gameheads / Re: Hide pulled around burr

I've hidden a few (1/4" ) by extending the antler burr lower with a small roll of epoxy and some paint.. you would never know ..
Being yours is so large tho maybe a combination of adding hair and burr to hide from both ends..

Deer and Gameheads / Re: price raise on shoulder mount whitetails?
« Last post by JerseyJays on Yesterday at 10:24:39 PM »
I haven't raised my deer head prices in several years .. I was going to this year but I decided to keep them the same and use payer eyes instead of the tohicon 250iq.. that's like a $10 raise right there..
Combine that with my tannery doing pickups now, I'm saving a boatload on shipping..
Also i ship McKenzie on trucking for most of my items to save a ton on shipping.  All those cost savings help keep my profits up where I'm making decent money at 575 where 5 years ago 575 wasn't seeming like so great

But I will say this.. I raised my prices from 525, to 550 to 575 over the past 10 years and each time I went up my business got more work.
I was going to go up to 600, but in relocated into a different part of my state and at 575 I was already the highest around. . I was worried about being the new guy in town and getting my name out there but my work load doubled because there's more hunters here than where I was the past 10 years.

I think I'll see how this season goes then make a decision for next year to raise and how much to raise.

Beginners / Help with frozen Bear hide
« Last post by hayzer912 on Yesterday at 10:07:32 PM »
Hello everyone!   Well, I am in need of some serious advice.  I harvested my first black bear in 2015. The bear was skinned by the outfitter in Maine and the hide placed in a plastic bag and frozen.   It was kept frozen for the trip home and upon arriving home I was more worried about dealing with the meat than the hide at the time therefore I put the hide in the freezer I use to store skulls , etc until cleaning and I kinda forgot about the hide.  I am NOT a taxidermist just an outdoorsman/Hunter.  My question is this......is this bear hide ruined because it's been in the freezer since 2015 or can it still be thawed out and mounted up?  Is there anything I can do to it prior to taking it to a taxidermist to improve the chances of saving it?  I'm really hoping it can be saved.   I appreciate any and all advice and detailed recommendations.
