Flesh And Bones Taxidermy

UPS is our preferred shipping carrier for the heads.
Shipping your head to Flesh and Bones Taxidermy is very simple. 
Simply follow the steps below.
1. Remove eyes and tongue.
2. Wrap the solid well frozen head in multiple plastic bags to prevent leakage.
3. Place your skull in a basic plastic tote, which can be purchased from any discount store for around $5.  Ship your skull on a Monday and we will receive it still frozen by Friday. YOU MUST CALL US PRIOR TO SHIPMENT SO WE CAN TRACK YOUR PACKAGE. When the processing is finished we will ship it back to you in the same tote. In the winter, you can send it UPS ground, but in the warmer months it must be sent 3 day delivery. DO NOT USE SALT on skulls. Write "taxidermy items" on the outside of the box.
