Once you have your skin mounted you can begin stuffing the mount. Note – if you are using a prepared taxidermy form, you can skip much of this section. Stuffing is done by forcing, with a crammer, small bunches of batting under the skin.
The crammer is made of round iron or steel, diameter 3/8 inch, length of 18 inches. One end is flattened, notched, and turned a little on one side, like a staple lifter; the other end is driven into a large wooden handle. Crammers of various sizes will be found useful in all kinds of taxidermy work.
Continue to stuff the neck until it is hard and has the desired shape. Draw down the skin tightly with pliers, and nail it firmly all around the edge of the bade-board, to hang up the head and facilitate the work about the muzzle
