I think Madabula makes a great point on some bullets potentially ruining capes for mounting. Blood shot spots have to be washed out very well or a stain can permanently set in on the finished mount. I have seen it many times on gemsbok and zebra skins. You have to wash the area very well. And I do believe he is correct in stating sometimes bullets hit so hard body fluid is forced into hair particle and the cape gets ruined. When you wash and wash a cape over and over again and it doesn't clear up...this is do to extreme shock and there is nothing you can do. A great taxidermy tip.
