guys i shot a big 10 point back in archery season and did not have the money to mount it since i was saving for my wedding.now that i am able to i was wondering if i could use a doe hide for the mount or if that would be to small in the neck area.or could it be strtched to fit the form.thanks for any help
My guess it that it would have to be a pretty big doe to make it look right. You can find people out there that might be selling or can gift you a hide. (ebay/taxidermy.com) Might be tough to find one now that the season is coming to a close but I'm pretty sure you you can get your hands on one. My buddy cuts up a lot of deer for people and I have seen many capes get tossed out. If you don't have any luck this year finding one shoot me a PM and I'm sure we can get you one next season.
Where in pa are u. Down my way there is a lot if deer still coming in the butcher shop. Ely's in bucks county has a bunch of buck and doe still coming in. You could sit at the drop off and I am sure a cut not keeping cape would be glad to give you one.
i'd wait for the right kinda cape. you saw your deer, so you can be the judge of "size". Most times a taxidermist should be able to find you one..but without measurements, its hard to say what size cape you want. If not the horns don't go bad. and maybe you'll shoot a decent sized buck(with not a big rack?lol) next year or sometime and want to use "your" deer for your ten point. rather then locating buying one.
