Most exotic hunts are 1-4 days and can take place year round. The weather can be very seasonable and for this reason it is important to do the following: If possible call Naturally Wild Taxidermy before you leave for your hunt to make drop off arrangements, Try not to leave the animal in direct sunlight, clean and butcher as soon as possible. Get the animal cooled quickly, in a freezer or ice chest immediately. Lastly, try not to get excessive blood or water on the cape. Remember, how you care for your trophy directly affects your mount!
