Deer and Gameheads / Help with fixing a botched Hog Mount
« Last post by rdjustham on Today at 02:53:18 PM »
Ok so a few years ago I caught a 280lb barr hog.  Took it to a taxidermist who I had heard good things about.  He did a great job on my dad;s deer, my hog, not so much.  After him having it to "fix" for a year he finally gets it back to me and it HORRIBLE.  Took it to a couple people to see if it could be salvaged and I think the phrase I kept hearing was "you didn't pay for that did you?"  with the resounding no.

So that being said my dremel and I went to work and removed the jaws, and actually gave him some nostrils.  A needle with warm water, a hot compress and an old dental pick and its no longer cross eyed.

My question is, its a McKenzie form, but how in the wold do I know what mouth set to get?  I would o loved for it to have its original teeth but for some reason cutting them different lengths before mounting was a good idea?!?!?!

Also I planned to just measure the eyes that were put in cross eyed and crooked to order ones that look like hogs eyes, unless anyone has a better idea, or the right one.  ;D

Carrion do they have sevin dust there. It's a powder bug repellent in the home and garden sections.  Mix it a 1/4 cup to 3/4 cup of baby powder and after the alcohol bath invert dust and mount right away.
Some of the farther off shopping centers have it, so I need to take a trip out there and see if I can get some. I bought the baby powered and I'm still looking for borax. If I can't get any I'll just use non iodized table salt.

« Last post by Rattrapper on Today at 01:56:43 PM »
Small approx. 17 inches from nose tip to tail base, and weighs approx. 3 pounds. Frozen whole perfect for full body mounts and will be wrapped, and shipped in a if it fits it ships box with plenty of housing insulation around it so will arrive still mostly frozen. Great buy at a $50.00 money order and I will pay the shipping costs out of that. It would be shipped on the Monday after I receive payment to insure your box doesn't sit over a weekend during shipping. Serious buyers welcomed to contact me at fsh_whisper@yahoo.com with subject heading "beaver" to discuss details and possible photo viewing. THANK YOU
