    How do you want it mounted ?

    Shoulder, Pedestal and a number of other options that will have an influence on cost aswell as price diference between professioinal taxidermists..

    Sorry to hijack, but what preparation's required prior to the taxidermist receiving it for a shoulder mount? Does the entire head require skinning, as well as the shoulder cape? Or is the front half basically left with him more or less as it is?

    Don't skin the entire head, but skin the neck and remove head at the atlas joint,skin from behind the shoulders, which might seem a lot but better to leave a little to much skin, he can always cut off any excess he can't do much with it if you have not left enough, best to tube skin the neck , though taxidermists do receive them where they have been cut up the back of the neck and can do a good job of stitching them up, especially as the back of the neck is to the wall and not seen

    Also don't bleed the animal in the normal way or you will spoil the skin, bleed out through the diaphragm.

    Alternatively don't skin at all - just separate the carcass behind the shoulder joint and take the lot to the taxidermist.

    They know how they like to prepare trophies, so I find it best to make as few cuts as possible.
