I killed my first buck about 30 years ago, to make a long story short not sure how the taxidermist tanned the hide but after about 20 years the nose cracked and fell off along with the eyes cracking bad. I took it apart about 5 years ago to at least save the rack. The taxidermist I used is no longer around, he also robbed me of a fox I got and a $300 deposit. I would like to try and redo it myself, heck I cant do much worse then he did lol. Here is one of the hides I am looking at. Description #13000 is a Whitetail deer cape 7.25x16x17x18 med-long hair, short incision, wet tan, November 9th Pennsylvania buck A- grade It says on their page that its AxCxBxD McKenzie measurements. My problem is I cant find a form to fit those measurements. Do you guys buy a little bigger form and stretch the hide? Here is the page from Mckenzie with sizes, would the one I picked out work with this skin? I have the same problem no matter what hide I pick I cant find the size form, just wondering if you guys order the forms the size bigger and stretch the hide or how do you go about picking a form once to have the dimensions? Which measurement is the most important when choosing a form? Also if I buy one of these tanned hides do I need to freeze it until I'm ready to mount it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
