Hellman's Wildlife Taxidermy, SDContributors to this thread:
Anyone familiar with This Taxidermy business? With CWD rules prohibiting bringing heads back to MN, was wondering if this would be a good place to bring a nice buck.
Is it that you can’t bring heads back or they have to be treated? I know MB has rules as well, and when I went to Montana I couldn’t bring a head back that wasn’t treated. I just bought by Single burner, peroxide and a propane tank and boiled it off in the field. Boiled it, hit a car wash, blasted it off, laid the peroxide on, and went and tried to kill a doe for a day. Packed up and went home and my euro was 100% wall ready. Border agent was very impressed. She said you can’t imagine what I see come through here lol.
This is how I brought it home. About an hour of effort, just needs some forethought.
That looks great! I could actually learn to cape my animals then saw the rack off and bring it back. But if I want a full head mount, if someone there can do a good job, I'm fine with leaving the head out where I am hunting. The last buck I shot in IA I left with Raccoon Valley Taxidermy and it turned out great.
Travis Taxidermy in Humboldt, SD. Great shop, does all of mine.
My Sitka Blacktail from Kodiak. Imagine if someone competent other than me had caped it! Ha!
