All our hides are professionally tanned.
We remove all cartilage and insert ear liners to ensure lasting stability.
All nose pads are rebuilt and retextured. Artificial septums are inserted.
When preparing antlers to affix to manikin we cut the skull cap extra-large to preserve original eye-to-antler alignment.
All hides are removed with a short-7 incision to minimize seam length (unless caped prior to arrival).
1. When soliciting prices ask the taxidermist how they prepare the hide.
2. Ask what method is used to ensure eye-to-antler alignment.
3. Ask how ears are prepared to ensure a natural look that will last.
4. Ask how the nose is prepared and finished.
Angler Beaver Taxidermy always uses the highest quality products and procedures available to ensure your mount will stand the test of time.

If your taxidermist avoids providing details on their method you may want to research other taxidermist's work. A professional taxidermist will always provide a complete overview on how your mount will be prepared. Preparation, products and atistry are key to building anatomically correct mounts that will last.

We are committed to you, our customer. We will bring your mount to life. Come look at our gallery and learn more.
