Care for your Cape

    It is extremely important for you as the consumer, to care for your animal cape/hide. The correct care for your cape should take place immediately following the kill. When gutting the animal do not cut past the front shoulders. This will cause more work for your taxidermist then needed.
    It is not recommended to hang an animal by its back legs, this causes blood to flow into the face of the animal and can spoil the cape. It is recommended that you hang by antlers or front legs. (You may hang from back legs to skin the deer.) If you do hang the animal by its back legs, never rinse the inside of the animal out with water. This causes the cape to swell and spoil.
    After your animal has been skinned, it needs to be refrigerated or frozen until it can be taken to a taxidermist.
