Yes, it can be saved. I wash most of my birds with some diluted Hydrogen Peroxide, which will whiten just about everthing. Winks is another cleaner that people will use to wash out rust in white birds, like Snow Geese. I fleshed and washed a pintail yesterday, that was blood soaked, and I did not remove all the blood, which surprised me a bit, because it was the first time that I didn't remove all the blood. I will wash it again the day I go to mount it, to see if I remove the remainder of the blood.

:getdown: i use a spray bottle with a soulution of clod water and tide liquid soap. i have had snow geese that were a mess and was able to remove the blood, to dry them and remove the moisture iuse calorax, work it into the feathers and blow dry with a shop vac, i know this is and old method but it has always worked for me,

If I have intentions of mounting a bird with a lot of blood, a little windex on a paper towel will remove most if not all of the blood, just tryin to be nice to my taxi since he's so nice to me
