    Is this where the old saying that "two heads are better than one" comes from?

    This is rare but not unheard of. A couple years ago in Wisconsin there was two deer entangled, one of them dead, and a do-gooder ran it down with a cordless Sawzall to free up the living

    Imagine though, these two deer got caught up together, one of em probably stomped the other one to death, eventually stomping off most of the offending body. Meanwhile, the survivor did not get stomped to death, did not starve to death, and was not eaten by coyotes. That is one TOUGH DEER!!!

    But what's a taxidermist supposed to do with that?

    That one needs to be mounted. Maybe euro-mount the deader one and stuff the livelier one? It would be a total pain in the azz. The taxidermist would need to boil off or pick off all that dead rotten flesh without taking it apart. The last thing in the world that you would want is to take those deer apart. But the finished mount would be rare and valuable.

    That would make one badass mount. That was one tough deer just to put up with the stankin' for several days.

    Brings to mind an old song by 10CC.

    That’s a taxidermist’s problem. Your EU idea is the same as mine, easy and cool!

    Mother nature can be cruel at times. Sad to see that.

    Self taught taxidermist here. A friend and I did a large mink about a decade go. Skinned it, non-iodized salt and borax, wring out the oil, salt and borax, wring out the oil, repeat. Filled it up with Great Stuff Foam, the window and door formula. Turned out the right shape and all, did not smell, but we could not get it to look like a mink. Could not get the ears to stand right and the jaw was a little screwy.

    The easy and in my opinion far better looking way to do a European mount cheap and easy is to bury the skull in compost and cover the antlers to keep squirrels from chewing on them and let the worms and flies deflesh it. Then you don't get that unnatural bleached look.
