Its November in Nebraska, and this guy brings me a mule deer he wants mounted. The deer, not having any testicles, still has velvet on its antlers, what do i need to do to preserve it? It has frozen a few times, and someone mentioned that they wouldnt be alive after that. If advised to tan which tan is recommended for this? I also will need some replacement velvet for a small spot on the side that rubbed off while he was transporting the buck, suggestions with this would also be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend having them freeze dried or replace the velvet with artificial. Research Mannikins offers a service where they replace the natural velvet with artificial velvet.
probably is a "perruque head", I think that in the States called also a "Stag".
For me the best thing is the freeze drying, replace velvet looks nice for normal velvet but in my esperience (roe and red deer) the perruque have a fur a little different respect the normal.
please, can you send me a pair of pics of this head?
