Cape Care Tips.
Ensure that you, or whoever is going
to cape your trophy, is knowledgeable about the task.
Every year I get a few 'short' capes.
This causes extra work for the Taxidermist and
results in a mount that is less than it could be.
This mistake, made in the field, is completely
preventable, but it happens again and again.
Take the responsibility for knowing the proper
cut lines and make sure it's done right.
If, after all your efforts, you still end
up with a 'bad' cape, stock capes are available,
but it will be an extra expense.
Care of the cape prior to delivery to a taxidermist is also crucial.
Warm and/or wet weather can cause Spoilage quickly resulting in hair
To minimize this possibility, remove as much meat/fat as you can and
cool the cape as soon as possible.
If this is not possible, as is often the case on an early hunt, then
get the cape to your taxidermist within a day
(two at the most).
Also keep the cape as clean and dry as possible.
As a last resort, application of non-iodized salt may extend the time
you have, but only if the cape is totally removed from the skull.
Otherwise, only the portion of the cape that gets salted will be preserved,
doing very little for the head or 'face'part of the cape.
