    Hides​

    Red Foxes​
    IMG_7124.JPG

    #1: Standard Red. Soft tanned in 2014, case skinned and considered to be garment quality. Weak leather, rehydration was formely attempted and the hide began to shed out. Further attempts may result in disintegration, therefore deeming the pelt too unstable and rendering it as a display piece only. Otherwise complete in the regard that all legskins, paws and lower jaw are still attached. One of the ears was torn during tanning and is being recommended to be left as is, but could be repairable with work by competent taxidermist as long as the leather in that area is capable of holding together. Small hole has been noted near the base of tail. $130 shipped

    #2: Pennsylvania Red. Dry tanned and case skinned by Moscow Hide and Fur in 2015. Ears were turned and skin split, however because of the aging tan I can not guarantee the leather is still viable enough for rehydration. Left ear was torn during the tanning process, should be repairable with work. 33 to 35 inches long from nose to base of tail. SOLD

    #3: Ranched Fire & Ice mutation, cased and dry tanned by The Wildlife Gallery in 2016. Ears turned, eye and lip skin split and legskins are all there. Front legs left inverted. Despite prior preparations for lifesizing, the lip skin looks like it is shaved down too closely to the leather and will likely not be entirely suitable for its intended purposes. SOLD

    #4: Silver and Silver Cross. Both captured locally in 2016, soft tanned as a garment quality pelt. Cased. Legskins and bottom jaws were removed. Ears on the silver have been shredded during tanning and at least one ear on the cross is torn. $300 for both shipped or $165 each

    #1: Western, partial pelt. Soft tanned as a garment quality fur in 2014, cased. Fore and rear legskins were removed during the tanning process as well as its lower jaw, leaving this piece suitable for display or crafting purposes only. Left eye hole appears to be slightly enlarged. Measures 35 to 36 inches from nose to base of tail. SOLD

    #2: Reddish blonde colorations. Finished as a partial dry tan and dorsal skinned by the tannery with everything left intact including fore and hind limbs, claws, and lower jaw. Its tan is estimated to be slightly on the older side, approximately 3 to 4 years old and there is no guarantee the leather will still be capable of holding against rehydration attempts for lifesizing. Nose to base of tail measurements reach just about 40 inches long and 3 inches from eye to nose. Bears several small cuts left over from the tanning process. SOLD

    #3: Melanistic eastern morph, case skinned and dry tanned by Moscow Hide and Fur in 2015. Legskins and paws are all there as is the lower jaw. Ears were turned and skin split, but there does not appear to be enough excess leather for tucking and because of the aging tan there is no guarantee it is capable of holding against rehydration. Nose to base of tail measures 43 to 44 inches and 4 inches from eye to nose. SOLD

    #4: Western, melanistic based coat with a small splash of white across the chest cavity. Case skinned by Costum Wildlife in 2016 and soft tanned locally. All legskins, paws, and lower jaw were left attached during the skinning process. Leather is somewhat stiff and has since not been recommended for lifesizing due to the nature of its tan and from lack of available skin for tucking purposes. Two different taxidermists were unable to thoroughly rehydrate the hide enough in order to split the lip and eye skin despite several repeated attempts. Suitable as a display piece only according to its flaws, although the pelt does still possess a lingering odor. Small bare area on left fore legskin. $450 shipped

    #5: Tan and dark phasing, western. Dry tanned by Sivko Fur Inc in 2017 and cut out as a dorsal. Small sized hole located on top jaw. "Tricolor" markings, coat is semi melanistic with light brown undertones. Hide measured between 42 to 45 inches in length from nose to base of tail and 3 to 3 1/2 from eye to nose. SOLD

    #6: Common western brush wolf colorations, no unique markings or mutations. Dry tanned by Sivko Fur Inc just before July of 2017. A relatively large hole was left over from tanning on the left front legskins, located closely to the armpit area as well as a slightly smaller matching hole on the opposite side towards the upper portion. 3 1/2 to 4 inches from eye to nose and 43 to 44 inches from nose to base of tail. $250 shipped

    #7: Reddish gray-brown western coat, pup. Case skinned and dry tanned by Moscow Hide and Fur in 2017. Legskins and paws were left intact along with its lower jaw. Lips were split and there looks to be enough left over for tucking, but it appears the face was shaved rather thin and the leather may not be capable of handling rehydration attempts without tearing. 32 to 34 inches long from nose to base of tail and about 3 1/2 inches from eye to nose. Right flank was nicked during tanning and the resulting cut is approximately an inch wide. $199.95 shipped

    #8: Western, common gray-tan. No unique mutations found on this coyote. Dry tanned by Moscow Hide and Fur during later 2017, cased skinned and partially complete. Three out of four legskins were left attached during the tanning process, right rear foot was removed. Remaining claws and paws are still intact. Bottom jaw all there. Ears turned, skin split. Measures 42 to 44 inches long from nose to base of tail. SOLD

    Wolves​
    IMG_7752.JPG

    #1: Melanistic, dry tanned in 2015 by Moscow Hide and Fur and case skinned. Primarily black with dark gray underfur and silver mixed in. Faint reddish caste behind shoulders. Measures approximately 54 inches long from eye to base of tail with an overall measurement of 74 inches. Legskins, paws and bottom jaw were left intact during tanning. Although the ears have been turned, the hide would be unsuitable for lifeisizing since the lip and eye skin was shaved down too closely to the leather and likely will be incapable of producing enough for tucking. $450 shipped SOLD


    Felines​
    IMG_7066.JPG
    Bobcat from 2016, garment quality tan and case skinned. Suitable for display or crafting only, everything is still there including tail, all four legskins, paws and bottom jaw. Ears not turned, lip and eye skin not split. Does not look like the leather would be able to produce enough for tucking. 34 to 35 inches from nose to base of tail. US CITES band attached. $220 shipped

    Traditional Mounts​

    Foxes
    Kit or Gray, lifesized piece provided through a real estate sale. Owner has stated that the mount is in an estimated 20 year old range and was allegedly "shot while raiding a chicken coop in the later 1900's by Captain Katherine Keating at a horse ranch in Colorado and kept on display in her Bed & Breakfest" until 2014. Fox has been positioned as sitting on a small log scrap and a pair of standard brown glass fox eyes were used for its form. Ears were somewhat splayed to the sides. Looks like the animal was possibly in the process of blowing out its coat or the hide may have been picked at by tenants. $200

    Lifesized white polar fox, mounted by a now retiring taxidermist in 2014. The leather was originally tanned as a garment quality hide and intended for display purposes, therefore it is possessing of a few minor imperfections. A noticable flaw left after tanning is the left fore leg which is partially missing, resulting in a stump that has been covered up by the taxidermist with bird feathers. Fox was done in a laying position on a costum snow inspired wooden biome with the head turned. Set with a pair of blue Arctic fox eyes. Its base measures 32 1/2 inches in length and 18 1/2 inches wide: from the tip of an ear to the bottom of the base, the mount is around 14 inches tall. Local transport or pick up is offered for this fox only. $500

    Swift, tanned by Moscow Hide and Fur and mounted locally in 2014. Lifesized in a standing pose on a desert inspired custom wooden habitat biome. Base should be removable. Form was set with a pair of hazel glass eyes. Nose is artificial as the original could not be thoroughly rehydrated and additionally, an area located on the underside seems to not have been sewn completely shut. From the bottom of the base to the tip of its ears, it is approximately 16 inches tall. The base itself is 25 inches length wise by 10 inches wide and 2 inches tall. Measurements provided of the pelt prior to being mounted were 27 inches long plus length of tail. The mount has since sustained damages including the ear tips and surrounding foliage. Furthermore, there appear to be stratches along the surface of its base. $630

    Ranched White mark Pearl or Glacier mutation. Mounted locally in 2014. Posed as standing on a wooden earth based habitat with the left foreleg raised and ears splayed slightly towards the sides rather than forward facing. Form was set with a pair of forest green eyes. Coat is not hugely marked and is lacking a full collar. $810

    Lifesized Polar. Posed in a sitting position with a strong head turned and set with regular brown Arctic fox eyes. Blue color morph, very minimally marked by white. Free standing mount, a base has not been attached to its form. $240

    Lifesized red, ranched light White mark Pearl or Glacier. One of the final projects completed by a local taxidermist, just finished this year in January 2019. Fox is not strongly marked and does not sport a full collar. Mounted in an elevated position on a dirt-based habitat with its left fore foot placed on a rock. Done with standard amber eyes. $700

    Coyotes
    IMG_7791.JPG
    Cape pedestal, common western brush wolf. Mount is a little on the older side, having been mounted in 1986. Standard amber eyes, coyote seems to be in a relatively decent condition albeit the right ear which appears to be bent somewhat at the tip. A newer wooden base has since been added. $215

    Partial lifesized hide, mounted as a cape pedestal in 2015 with brown-amber eyes. "Tricolor", fur is melanistic with brown undertones behind ears combined with minimal markings streaked across the snout region and additonal white coated hairs on face and chest. Newer wooden base has since been added to the back of form. $238

    Wolves
    Pedestal, mounted by a local taxidermist in 2016 and settled on a wooden base. Fur is an ivory white with light brown undertones topped with peppered mixtures of black and gray guard hairs. A portion of the hide located on the back of both ears did sustain recent damages where a tenant plucked off the fur, the condition is noted to be worse on the left ear to the point of revealing part of the earliner underneath. Slippage also occured while being rehydrated and began shedding out on the lower region of shoulders, resulting in a section of the pelt being removed by the taxidermist and placed underneath the mount. Head is turned to the right and form is set with a pair of standard amber eyes. $600


    Pickup is preferred for rigid mounts due to fragility and package weight, although shipping within the United States can be arranged for certain items. Personal transportation in a 10 mile radius of Springfield, Ohio, may also be available upon request.

    Soft Mounts​

    Foxes
    Red fox, ranched "Arctic Marble" variety. Fur is mostly white with the exception of a dark gray dorsal stripe that extends halfway down tail and further accented by black and gray facial markings, as well as a splash of white running from forehead to nose. Very minimal spotting on the ears, none on the legs or body. Fox has been mounted with medium blue glass eyes that stand out against its coat. A hole in the right front legskin has been noted where the thread seems to have become loose and repairs will be attempted before going to its new home. There is a relatively small bare area located just above the upper hairline. $750 shipped
