    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Practise first it's quite easy to fuck up if you actually need to do it. As you have to turn the eyelids inside out and open up the ears etc to salt the hides. Otherwise best to have the taxidermist do it. They usually prefer doing it than fixing fuck ups.

    Yip, a fair difference between Caping the deer out from the field and Prepping a Cape for taxidermy.

    ive got another good link on 'how to' cape the deer for trophy mount... ill post it up when i find it ... Found it.

    Caping Deer for Shoulder Mounts - Step by Step Guide - Sporting Shooter

    good one.
