Re: Deer cape

Depending on size of neck could be anywhere from $100-300 already tanned.

Re: Deer cape

Where abouts are you located? My buddy butchers a bunch of deer each year and I'm sure we would be able to set a cape aside for someone who might need one. You could take the antlers off the old mount and just give a taxidermist the antlers and a new cape to process. I would thing he would charge the same as any other mount would cost? If your not local, I would think at deer processing place would be able to help out?

Re: Deer cape

The butcher I take my deer to will charge around $60 for a cape. You let him know the size and when one comes in and meets the description, he will call to tell you to come and get it. He is the best "knife" for cape and leaves plenty of room for pedistal mounts. Every taxidermist I have taken capes/antlers to comment about how nice the cape was (not the hair, but the cutting)

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.
