Hide Preparation

Lone Star Fur Dressing and Taxidermy offers full service hide prep, included in the overall fee. This includes turn and split the eyes, lips and ears, as well as remove foot bones and skulls. Lastly, the hide is both fleshed and salted.

When shipping hides to be hide prepped, please follow these guidelines

• Taxidermist must code hide so you know who the hide belongs to when you get them back.
• Tag the animal with a wooded or waterproof tag with Taxidermist information. Tag at the back of the animal, at least 1 inch from the edge, making your cut horizontal.
• When the hide is returned to you, it will be in a clear bag with your legible tag.
Do Not Salt and Freeze the hide. Salt prevents complete freezing and can make prepping difficult. Just place the hide in a bag and freeze it.
• Once the hide is completely frozen, place in container of your choice and pack with dry ice
• Ship at the beginning of the week so that the package is not left in a warehouse facility over the weekend.
