Important Steps to Preserving Your Cape for a Mount

 

1.  Field dress your trophy immediately.

2.  Cut the hide long for a mount, more is better, cut at least 6" behind the front legs for a shoulder mount

3.  Never cut the hide up the front or back of the neck.  Skin it out up to the skull, turning it inside out like a sock as you go.  Leave the skull in place.

4.  Keep it cold, but NEVER get the hide wet, NEVER use ice. Store it in a garbage bag to keep it from drying out.

5.  Never drag your hide/trophy on the ground.

6.  Get your trophy to the taxidermist as soon as you can.
