    I mounted an elk for a client of mine a couple of years ago and since then he had a house fire. Fire didn't get to the mount but it is saturated in smoke smell. He also has some other mounts like bobcat and deer that have smoke damage.
    Anyway I could get the smoke smell out?

    We've done smoke damaged mounts. We use 409 for cleaning. Depending how bad it is, it will get some of the smoke smell out. But, no guarantees.

    Try checking with Mckinze to see if they still handle a product called Seybright. It worked really well back in the day on old mounts that hung in smoke filled bars that people wanted restored.
