Shipping outside the US

Can You Repair Damaged Mounts?


Yes, but we need to see the trophy and assess the severity of the damage involved. If the item cannot be repaired, in most cases it can be remounted.


Can you remount a trophy using only the original horns?


Yes, we frequently remount trophies using only the horns or antlers. You provide the horn or antlers, along with the desired position and mount size, and we’ll handle the rest, including obtaining a new hide if necessary.


How quickly will a hide begin to spoil?


Decomposition begins the moment the animal dies. Time lapse and temperature levels both play important roles in decomposition. Once the temperature rises above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, bacteria begins to grow, accelerating decomposition.


What is the cause of hair slippage?


Hair slippage is generally the result of two primary issues:


  • Bacterial growth (occurring in a hide that has risen above 40 degrees Fahrenheit) due to improper field care
  • Mechanical slips caused by dragging the animal in the field


In some cases, animals exhibit natural hair loss resulting from shedding, ticks, rubbing against trees, fences and other objects, as well as mating.


My mount is infested with bugs. How did this happen and what can I do to counter the effects?


Answer in progress.


What form of payment do you accept?


We accept all forms of payment (cash, check, credit card) except American Express.


What are your payment terms?


We require a 50% deposit for each individual item prior to beginning work on the project. The balance of the payment is due in full upon completion of the project. Any mount not paid in full at the time of completion will be assessed an additional storage fee. Any mount not picked up or arranged to be shipped within 60 days of completion becomes the property of Brumfield Taxidermy.
