Field Care Tips

Field care is how a hunter handles an animal after it is harvested. A good mount starts with proper field care! Heat and bacteria can cause a good hide to go bad within just a few hours. To avoid this, get the animal frozen as soon as possible. This is especially important in warmer climates. Also avoid handling the ears and carrying the animal by the tail, as those areas are especially prone to fur loss. If there is damage to the digestive organs (for example, being 'gut shot'), remove the organs as the leakage of digestive fluids onto the skin can hasten spoilage. Signs of a specimen already entering the state of decay include odor, bloating, and fur loss.
