    #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

    #4 & 5: 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 OBO

    Coyote #4: Western, melanistic based coat with a small amount of white on the chest. Case skinned by Custom 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. Suitable as a display or crafting piece only according to its flaws, although the pelt does still possess a lingering odor. Small bare area on left fore legskin. $450 shipped OBO


    Coyote #6: Common western brush wolf colorations, no unique markings or mutations. Dry tanned by Sivko Fur Inc just before July of 2017. A fairly large hole was left over from tanning on the left front legskins, located closely to the armpit area along with 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. Will be included with a pair of 20mm amber coyote glass eyes. However due to the age of its tan, I can no longer guarantee that the hide is taxidermy grade. $250 shipped OBO

    Wolf, typical gray. Tanned locally in 2017, garment quality hide. Considered complete with all legs, tail and face intact but there does not appear to be enough leftover lip and eye skin for tucking so the pelt is recommended to be used as a wallhanger or for crafting purposes. Ears were not turned. Legs are split all the way into the feet, looks like it may be missing its paw pads. $440 OBO. Will not be shipped to California or New York.

    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 will be able to produce enough for tucking. 34 to 35 inches from nose to base of tail. US CITES attached. $220 OBO shipped

    Traditional Mounts

    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. SOLD



    Lifesized white polar fox, mounted by a now retiring taxidermist in 2014. The hide was originally a garment quality tan instead of taxidermy grade, therefore it does have a few minor imperfections. The left front leg was partially removed during tanning, resulting in a stump that has been covered up by the taxidermist with bird feathers. Fox was done in a laying position on a custom snow inspired wooden biome with the head turned and set with a pair of blue Arctic fox eyes. Its base measures approximately 32 1/2 inches in length and 18 1/2 inches wide, and from the tip of an ear to the bottom of the base, the mount is around 14 inches tall. Local transport or pick up only for this fox. $515

    Swift fox, tanned by Moscow Hide and Fur and mounted locally in 2014. Lifesized in a standing pose on a desert inspired custom wooden habitat biome. Form was set with a pair of hazel glass eyes. Nose is artificial as the original could not be thoroughly rehydrated and there appears to be an area located on the underside that was not 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, excluding the length of the tail. The base seems to have scratches on it as well. $630
    IMG_8491.JPG



    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
    IMG_8485.JPG



    Ranched Champagne or "Pink" red fox mutation, mounted locally in 2016. The mount has been positioned on a wooden habitat base by the taxidermist in a custom semi sitting posture in order to appear as if it were leaning back against a wooden post, which was further accessorized with wire to resemble part of a barbed wire fence. $730
    IMG_8421.JPG



    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



    IMG_7791.JPG
    Coyote 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
    IMG_8529.JPG



    Partial lifesized hide, mounted as a cape pedestal in 2015 with brown-amber eyes. "Tricolor" coyote, fur is melanistic with brown undertones behind ears combined with minimal markings on 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




    Wolf pedestal, mounted by a local taxidermist in 2016 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. $635 OBO

    Pickup is preferred for rigid mounts due to fragility and package weight, but shipping within the United States can be arranged for certain items. Personal transportation to select areas of Marysville, Bellefontaine and Springfield, Ohio, may also be available upon request.

    Soft Mounts


    Red fox, ranched "Arctic Marble" variety. Fur is mostly white with the exception of a dark gray dorsal stripe that extends halfway down tail. Black and gray facial markings, as well as a white stripe 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
    IMG_6481.JPG



    Red fox, ranched Pearl variety. Beautiful fur markings, otherwise the coat is not quite so prime. It began to shed out during the mounting process and resulted in several small to medium sized bare patches scattered across the body. Feet were not clayed but the rest of the fox seems to be finished. Left ear appears to have sustained breakage and is missing its tip. Mounted with blue eyes. $245 OBO shipped



    Red fox, ranched Silver. "White Mark" phase but is not very heavily collared. White socks with some spotting on the legs. Standard red fox eyes. $845 shipped

    Western coyote. Liver-brown phasing with black tipped guard hairs. Mount is approximately between 3 to 5 years old and was done with an unusual set of eyes. One appears to a pale yellow and the other is more of a brown color. Mount is approximately 4 to 5 years old. $700 OBO shipped
    IMG_8462.JPG



    Western coyote. Red-blonde with black tipped hairs. Partially missing a chunk from tip of its right ear, otherwise the animal appears to be complete with no additional flaws recorded. Regular amber eyes and is estimated to be 2 to 4 years old. $600 OBO shipped
