Skinning / Post Hunt Facilities

Trophies are skinned, salted and stored in separate sheds made of brick, hence are very secure and 100% vermin proof. These facilities are well ventilated and have electric lighting. The trophies once dried are stored separately and tags are used for identification. There is also an abattoir with cold room.

All the skinners have at least 8 years’ experience and Colletts Wildlife Artistry is recommended. However, trophies can be shipped to the client’s own taxidermist of choice.
