Trophy Preparation - If you are not local to Houston, Texas, your trophy animal will need to be prepared for transit to us. We would advise you to take it to a local game processor or an outfitter in your area, tell them you are going to have a mount made from the cape (the hide, head and feet) so they can process the meat and prepare the cape for shipping to B&B Taxidermy. The cape and other parts need to either be packed in salt or frozen, then packed in dry ice. Our address is on our contact page. If you are close to Houston Texas, we have a couple of fine game processors that will serve you well! One is Bellville Meat Market the the other is Midway Deer Processing. Remember, we only want the CAPE, NOT the MEAT!
Trophy Cape Transit - There are two ways to get your trophy capes to B&B Taxidermy from the New Orleans area. First, if you would enjoy a day trip... drive it to us, that way we can meet and get precise taxidermy instructions from you on how you want your mount to look. You'll also see our showroom with the many mount, habitat and base options! With taxidermy, if you can imagine it... we can most likely do it! Secondly, you can ship it via FedEx! Call us about the details and we'll answer all your taxidermy shipping questions. One way or another, we'll receive your trophy cape from New Orleans.
Game Preparation Taxidermy Tips - Do not let the cape get warm or the hair can fall out. Do not let the skulls for european mounts sit out and get warm, or they will rot and stink and may not be accepted.
Small Animals should be frozen and NOT gutted.... just bring them in WHOLE and we'll do the rest.
Turn-Around Time - Your estimated turn-around time is 8 to 10 months, however depending on the season, that time could be reduced.
Regardless of your location in Louisiana, please call us at B&B Taxidermy so we can discuss how you want your mount presented, including the type of base and habitat you prefer.
We'll also give you a rough estimate of your return shipping costs. It will be a "rough estimate" as different factors such as the crating costs, the dimensions of the crate, it's weight and where it is going come into play determining the actual shipping cost.
If you have any questions before, during or after your hunt... feel free to call B&B Taxidermy for help at 281-469-2920.
