    Hello,
    I am new to taxidermy, and I picked up a roadkill whitetail fawn and would like to give it a go on mounting her. Any and all info would be appreciated! I am most curious about what and how to "skin" the hooves, and what to do preservation and tanning wise. Also, I do not own a airbrush kit yet, so is painting the nose and around the eyes possible to do by hand?
    Thanks!

    Before anything , check your state laws on legal possession.
