So my dad shot a nice whitetail this past season. He was debating weather or not to get it mounted so it has been sitting in a freezer. He is pretty set on not doing it anymore due to the fact that there are a lot of things happening this summer so getting it mounted is pretty much out of the question. He says he might cut the antlers off and be done with it. I'm definitely not letting him do that! So the other night we were talking about taxidermy (schools and such), as I've always had interest in being a taxidermist. He brought up maybe practicing on his deer. Now that really got my attention. I'm quite interested but I'm lacking experience. How big of a task is this? I'm patient with things like this but I would be really nervous as to mess up. I definitely wouldn't want to totally fail an attempt at this but it seems like a better idea then just hacking those antlers off! I don't know what I should do I just want your opinions. All feedback would be helpful! Thanks in advance!
