Thread: preferred skinning method for life size mounts

    Default preferred skinning method for life size mounts

    Heading up the the great wet north in a couple weeks and luck permitting will be bringing back a brown bear and wolf. Looking to do life size mounts of each. For skinning out the animals what is the preferred method - belly cut of dorsal cut for each. Thanks for the guidance.

    I would recommend you ask that question of the taxidermist who will be doing your mounts.

    Default Dorsal cut preferred

    The taxidermist prefers the dorsal cut for life size mounts. Is that practical for a brown bear, hopefully a really large brown bear?

    It depends on the type of mount you are haveing done. Example if your bear is standing looking back over its shoulder a split up the belly would be the best. So as stated before talk to your taxidermist. But we can fix just about anything, if you want to pay the extra.

    I hope that helps. Tracy
