Here are answers to a few questions we’re frequently asked.
Q – How do I prepare a fish to mount?
A – Freeze it whole in a plastic bag. Don’t gut it. Then bring it to Albrecht Taxidermy as soon as possible.
Q – I shot a deer and want it mounted, what should I do?
A – Bring the deer whole to Albrecht Taxidermy and we will cape off what’s needed on the deer.
We will wrap the exposed meat in a plastic bag for you ($30 charge to cape and wrap meat).
Q – If I kill a game bird such as a turkey, and want it mounted, what should I do?
A – Keep the feathers as smooth as possible. Bend the head and neck around the body and tuck beneath a wing. Freeze it whole in a plastic bag. Do not gut it. For small birds such as ducks and pheasants, place them in a nylon sock, then freeze in a plastic bag. Bring the frozen bird(s) to Albrecht Taxidermy.
