When an animal is given proper field care, taxidermy can be used to preserve and display the trophy for years to come. F Bar Taxidermy is a local taxidermist that creates lifelike mountings for clients in the Canyon, TX area.
The information on this page will help you prepare your specimen before bringing it in for preservation. Please feel free to call 806-382-4577 if you have any questions about field care.
Once you've taken a game animal, it's crucial that you give it proper field care. Taxidermy results are best when the specimen has been prepared as follows:
Small Game: Wait for the specimen to cool, then bag and freeze it ASAP. Do not cut or gut your animal before bringing it to us.
Large Game: Avoid dragging the specimen to keep the pelt from being damaged. Skin and dismember the animal according to best practices recommended for the species.
Hides: Do not salt hides, as this can cause damage. Freeze the hide after harvesting.
Once your catch is prepared, bring it to F Bar Taxidermy, where a skilled local taxidermist will turn it into a trophy you can display proudly.
