    I was given a tiny WT fawn that died inside a doe when she was hit by a car. My friend gutted the doe and found a perfectly formed but dead fawn inside her. I want to cast the carcass to make the form to mount it but have never done it. Can someone recommend a video or tutorial on this.
    Also anything I should be aware of when mounting something like this?

    Jan VanHoesen Has a video on carcass casting a bobcat, it would probably help. McKenzie sells it.

    There's also the "Small Mammal Carcass Casting" DVD with Jason Snowberger.

    Good for you. Much less work than casting your own form.
