    1. What is a European mount? - A European Mount is the process of removing all of the skin, muscle and meat, down to the bone and cartilage on any animal skull.
    2. What kind of skull can’t I send for mounting? - Animals that are head shot will not hold up during the cleaning process.
    3. How long does it take to get my mount back? - This will depend on the condition of the skull when it arrives. All mounts will be done in the order that they are received. Average turn around time is 3 to 4 months.
    4. Will there be a hanger on the back of my head?  - Yes, all mounts will have a hanger so your trophy may be displayed on the wall.
    5. Can my European mount be scored (P&Y or B&C) when it is done?  - Yes, this is a huge advantage that beetle cleaned skulls have over a boiled skull. Boiling skulls causes bone shrinkage, to include the antlers, while there is no bone shrinkage related to beetles.
    6. Can my European mount be mounted on a cape later, years down the road?  - Yes, this being another advantage to European mounting your trophy. Traditional head mounts only use the skull cap, which can be taken from a European mount, years later if so desired.
