Taxidermy and salt air
My wife wants to eventually move to into a beach front property.
I imagine salt air is brutal on taxidermy. Is this the case and if so what options are available to protect your mount?
There has got to be a few taxidermist who can weigh in on this.
Will you have air conditioning? High humidity will be a factor in many coastal areas but a/c will control the humidity. Other than that I don't see anything about living on the beach that will affect your mounts.
Salt is part of the tanning process
I live about 3 miles from the Great Salt Lake here in Utah.
Never had an issue with any of my multiple mounts.
Good luck, Robb
I live on an island, I don’t use a/c and all my mounts are fine. I wouldn’t worry about it....
Thanks i appreciate the feed back.
That great caribou you got in 06 will be fine Chuck. Hope all is well.
That great caribou fell 10 feet. I was so upset i left it on the floor for a week. I was able to fix it though.
Unless your taxidermy is made of uncoated steel, I wouldn't worry about it.
I'd be more worried about the effects of sunlight than salt air....especially since many beachfront residences have lots of windows......
