European Mounts

Skell taxidermy provided by rivers edge taxidermyCleaned Skulls for European Skull Mounts

Rivers Edge Taxidermy offers skull cleaning, otherwise know as a European mount.  European mounts will give your trophy a unique modern look that will work with any type of decor you have in your home. I use a technique called maceration that achieves the same end result as beetles.  The nasal cavity is left intact and the bone does not get brittle like you receive from a skull that has simply been boiled.  If you know that you will be doing a European Mount rather than a shoulder mount, if it is a mature animal, cape your trophy anyway and bring it in with the horns/antlers as a credit toward your mount.  I also buy mature deer and elk capes to do remount’s for old or damaged shoulder mounts.
