Re: [taxidermy] question about pronghorn mount
I would not Brush it any more then you have to
I to ran into some thing like that
with a caribou cape I mounted the guy had this
shoulder cape in a Barn for about 12 years and I was
not awear of that at the time so I mounted it and
noticed that the hair was falling out as well I
brushed it Just enough to make it look as good as I
could and then left it alone and I tell others not to
tuch it due to the hair falling out it will last a
life time the way it is as long as you dont keep
Brushing it every know and then take a feather duster
to it and thats it nothing els
hope this helps
