Greetings all, I am a very green taxidermist, and I am in need of any advice for the task that I have accepted. A very good buddy of mine, and his dad, are going on a Buffalo hunt here in eastern Colorado, in 2 days. Unfortunately, It's probably going to be his Father's last hunt due to his illness...Well, he asked me to mount it for him. Obviously with his situation(and mine)I will be doing this for free. He's aware that I have never done this before but he's good with it. ANY/ALL advice accepted. I am sure most of you are aware of East Colorado's climate and with that, is there any special care that should be rendered upon him taking this animal? I am sure the outfitter will cape it ETC, but after that, what recommendations should I pass on to him for transport of the head/hide to the house? With an animal that size, I am clueless. What kind of products would you all recommend for cleaning/tanning/preserving a Buffalo hide specifically?? Many more questions to follow such as reference material etc, but for now, I am just curious as to where to start on this beast. THANK YOU all in advance!!
