Game Fish Taxidermy in the Winnipeg Area

Preparing Your Game Fish for Taxidermy

Please be sure that when shipping fish to us for mounting, the belly is not cut. If a cut has to be made, make it along the side of the fish, as this will not show when it is mounted for display. Always ship fish frozen or packed in dry ice to ensure that your trophy does not spoil. We prefer to receive fish unskinned, but if you are in a remote area where freezing facilities are not available, you can skin the fish as follows:

  1. Lay the fish out on a piece of paper and take the measurement around the neck, girth, tail and total length.
  2. Cut the fish on the side only and proceed to remove the skin from the fish.
  3. After the fish is skinned, rub salt into all the parts of the fish.
  4. Roll up the skin in paper and send it in for mounting as soon as possible.

For Shipping Direct

All specimens should be carefully and properly labeled; please enclose a letter of instructions.

For Return Shipping

We ship out all specimens in a solid wood crate to insure that your trophy will arrive in perfect condition.

Raw Fur: All skins or hides of fur-bearing animals or game animals must be accompanied by an export permit.

Secure packaging is a must and the label should read, "Rush Perishables" and do request the courier service to phone when the shipment reaches its destination, as someone will be on call after hours.

Important: Do not ship raw furs via parcel post; only skins that have been stretched and dried may be transported in this manner.
