Whitetail Deer Taxidermy FAQs

Below are some frequently asked questions about whitetail deer mounts:

How to skin a whitetail deer for taxidermy?

The process involved for skinning a whitetail deer is to first measure out the area of the deer’s head, neck, and some portion of the chest with the deer skull. These measurements will be important for ensuring that the taxidermy mount comes out as expected. Caping is the process of removing the skin from the whitetail deer to create the taxidermy mount. The measurements will help to identify the proper areas to cut. Next is treating the skin. This involves soaking the skin in a solution to preserve and give it a natural, leather-like finish that can be easily maintained. More information in our how to properly field dress a deer.

How to mount whitetail deer antlers?

The first step is to prepare the antlers, which involves cutting the antlers from the skull and cleaning the flesh off the skull. Then, you’ll choose the wood that you want for the mount. There are a range of beautiful woods you can choose from, including pine, oak, walnut, and cherry. Design, trace, cut out, and stain the wood. Next, you’ll drill holes into the skull plate and secure the antlers to the plaque. Lastly, cover the bone and hang your finished mount. More info on this process can be found in this how to mount antlers article. If you have any questions on this process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the experts at All-Taxidermy.
