Try stop slip, or similar

Hi..if you can, mount it right away, rather than drying and rehydrating. I would think that would just be giving it more chances to slip.
I would also sponge or spray on something like Stop Slip. Put the fan on it while drying, because I mounted one some time ago, and even after the hair was dry, the hide took forever to dry, and we have low humidity here.
Also, try to groom/brush the area as little as possible, and I also saw a tip someone else mentioned on these forums, use a hide puller to 'taxi' the skin, rather than grabbing the hide with your hands.
Good luck with the 'bou!
