Hello, I live in Washington, so we have whitetail, mule, and blacktail deer all within a short distance. I wanted to try taxidermy, so I ordered the deer kit from WASCO. I mounted one, then two, and now I am producing really really good whitetail mounts. Anyways, since I live in the middle of prime blacktail hunting, and I have many nice sets of horns and capes to mount them, I am going to try the blacktails since all the ones I have done are whitetails. My question is that is there anything different done when mounting a blacktail than a whitetail? I wouldn't think so but I thought I had better make sure. Thanks.

Although they are very different animals physically speaking. The mounting procedures are the same. I mount deer, elk, moose, caribou and most heads exotic and african using the same steps. But they are all different from one another and each one has it's own physiology.
I live in Alder, which is just west of Mt. Ranier about 30 miles, and just east of Eatonville and Puyallup.
