In taxidermy terms, youll skin them, flesh off the meat and connective tissues, salt to cure, pickle to stabilize, shave, neutralize, then tan. After that, youll mount them to a form, sew them up, adjust and let dry. Or take them to a taxidermist, because its a whole lot easier!

you can also put the feet in borax solution for a pair of week, cut them at the right lenght, clean inside whit acetone, fix a pice of wood inside whit epoxy and fix whit screw at the plaque.
Or fix whit formaline for a pair of week than put in acetone (for 2 pair I thinkyou have to use a gallon ath the last)then cut like above.
this aren't professional work, and don't give you a perfect speciment but for a home made gunrack work.
