Early this morning I shot my first ever deer. Very pleased with the shot - straight through the heart.
It's a young roe buck. The carcass had to go to the estate but I was able to keep the head.
I'd like to keep the fur on the head and mount the head on a wooden plaque. I don't want to boil the head back to the bare skull.
I've vacuum packed the head and popped it in the fridge.
I'm looking for a recommendation of a taxidermist and advice on what to do next.
