After decades of taxidermy, I took in my first moose this fall, or I should say my wife took it in. I was planning to send it out for tanning, but when I thawed it out to flesh and salt it, it was full of magots and filthy dirty, so I tanned it myself. The cape weighed close to 100 pounds, so that was a royal pain. At least the hair was not falling out (yet). The form alone weighs a lot too, so I'm not looking forward to this project. I took in a ton of deer this fall, so now I'm really dreading that moose, which I will save for last.
