I picked up a Fallow mount and it has a strong smell to it that I can’t get rid of, it’s alittle bit better today but it made the whole house smell ( kind of like chemicals) I tried fabreeze and chemical guys signiture scent ( aka stripper scent) niether of them helped. Anyone have any advice? [Linked Image]

Just live with it. It’s gonna pass

Doesn’t bother me really, the girls just keep talking about the smell and they can’t be on that side of the house so was gonna try and make it better.

Yup. A lot of exotic mounts have some odor. Had a sika done a few years back. Took it home, next day took it back to the taxidermist. It was horrid. Hung in his shop for about a month before the smell dissipated. Taxi can have the hide tanned and that will take a lot of the smell out, but sounds like that advice is too late for you.

Candle 'til it dissipates? But, I gotta know, what's a "stripper scent"? grin

Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

You can put some charcoal in a couple of socks and hang them on the mount. It will absorb the smell.

Leave it outside in a screened enclosure (to keep dermestid beetles off it) or try soy candles (which work well enough to remove4 cigar smoke from a room).

That mount can't be worse than the odor of Glade Clean Linen

Could try hanging it in your garage for a month or so to see if it goes away.

Had to do this once. Took about a month in the garage and then I could take it in the house.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

if it's really "chemical" smell (good thing as its likely tanning chemicals) it will go away as others have said in a few weeks. If it smells like an animal (that's bad) then that is a whole different deal and likely not a tanned hide but dry preserved.

This is stripper scent they renamed it to signature scent, I ran a hotel for a few years and I would change the label and get the house keepers to use the different scents and they all said that was the best smelling one lmao! I highly recommend their products for car cleaning and smells.
Thanks everyone for the help I’ll give it a try!
