Didnt get tanned good enough? Take it back to taxidermist? anyone else ever have this happen?

Just saw your post.

That black spot on the antelope neck/jaw has a gland under it. It needs to be fleshed down to the point where the gland is gone, but not into the hair roots. Fussy job. If the gland was mised- it will never go away.

I would take it to another Taxi- have em order you a cape and remount your horns on a different form/hide.

I send my hides out for fleshing and tanning on Antelope, since I am never sure about that gland. It costs me more, but its money well spent. If your guy wasnt familiar with those glands, you could be in trouble.

Have three goat shoulder mounts in the house and none smell. Your taxidermist screwed up...
