previous mounted deer caps : have a question

Submitted by B.G. on 2/8/00. ( ) 63.25.165.121

Is their any way to take a cape off a old deer mount and mount it on
a new form. The reason Im asking is because I just resently recieved
a mount of a deer I had killed and it was mounted on the wrong form.
I myself am trying to get into taxidermy for a hobbie and was wonder-
ing if this could be done.

How was it mounted on the wrong form?

Can you explain and have you talked to the Taxidermist? John C

It was mounted on a full upright looking straight on and I wanted semi
upright with a left turn. I have talked to the taxidermist and he said
it couldnt be done but other people told me it could be done.

I would appreciate your reply.


depends on the way it was mounted

like if he used epoxy hide paste it will most likely be impossible to
get the hide relaxed and off again.
does the mount look good other than the position?
maybe it would be better to just leave it as is ?
