Re: Can you re-mount a buck??
There is a possibility that the orginal cape could be soaked out and reused, but it depends wether it was tanned or not, and if tanned, what type. If it was properly tanned with a syntan, it could be reworked. If it was dry preservative, forget it after 2 years ( the natural glues left in the hide by this method do things that become irreversable after a certain point). Alum based tans- iffy.
Where are you located? If you are around York/Adams I could possibly help you. I do crazy things like salvage 7 year old freezer burned capes so the hunter has HIS cape, so who knows, maybe I could salvage your cape. But again, depends on the preservation method used.
