Mounted a whitetail and the hair stands up a bit, making a slit across the buck's white patch. Pretty sure that the screen wasn't tight enough - but anyone have any answers on what went wrong and if there's a cure? The mount has had 4 months of dry time. Thanking you in advance.

It's Wrinkled!

This response submitted by Rob on 8/4/00. ( )

It sounds like there is a small wrinkle in the hide that may need to be stretched out a little more. I use a hide puller for this.At least that's what I call it!I just keep stretching the hide toward the brisket until I work the wrinkle out.The hair should lay down normal then.
Hope this helped.

you'll need to figure out a few things---feel into the hair---can you feel a wrinkle or bump in the skin? if not, then your screen might have actually caused the wrinkle. fix it by coating with a super mega hold hair gel, the re-screening and pinning into position.

if you can feel a wrinkle in the skin, you should re-hydrate the neck area(wrap it in a very wet towel for a few hours.) when it softens up, then press the wrinkle out and let it dry.

If the bump is caused by something under the skin that won't re-hydrate(bondo,epoxy, trash, etc.) then take a hammer and beat it flat. then use gel and re-card.

Good Luck

Was the deer drug by the neck?

I know from alot of head aches that some times a rope burn can cause this delema.
I would check every thing stated above.
If all seems well jell the crap out of it.It should for the most part after repeat applications stay down. AL

Sometimes a hair dryer will help get the hair where you want it to go.
