Does anoyone know of a Taxadermist in the IE. I live in riverside but i'd be willing to travel some distance.

Also is there any special prep? I just got my deer this weekend and i caped him but i did not salt the hide or anything. Is there something i should do right away?

Just freez it as soon as possible. If you are going to be in the field with it for a while you need to salt it and put it skin side on skin side. (hairside out) Dont let the skin side touch the hair side of it will cause the hair to fall out. Put it in a game bag and let it breath. I dont know about a taxidermist in riverside though. Good luck man. I tan all my own hides using KROWTAN. Its pretty easy but fleshing is tedius. After its tanned i just box it up and send it out for mounting if i dont decide to do it myself.
