I recently went on my first safari and shot a few animals. To stay within a reasonable budget I opted to only do shoulder mounts on three and some skull mounts. I'm starting to have some second thoughts. I'm wondering if a taxidermist can tell me the difference in the cuts between when they cape out an animal for a pedestal mount and when they skin them for a full flatskin. Is it possible to still use that skin and have a shoulder or pedestal mount done or is the hide pretty much ruined for that purpose?
