    Hi guy's I reached out to @gizmo yesterday. Many years ago I shot a Hybrid Ibex on a large ranch in Texas. I really don't recall who did the taxidermy work but the cape has completely fallen apart. It actually fell off the wall because the cape has just disintegrated. Luckily the horn's were not damaged . It actually was number 3 in the SCI book at the time and I was luck enough to have my picture in the record book with my ibex. If anyone can help me out with a cape please PM me. Thanks

    My guy has one. Has to check with the client to make sure he don't want it and how much. I know I'm going to get banged on the head.

    Found a cape! I called a local taxidermist who I honestly don't know who just winds up being a master taxidermist who has won several national titles. He made a call to someone he knows in Texas and was able to obtain an ibex cape for me at a very reasonable price. My taxidermist wanted several hundred dollars more but then told me the client who owned the cape was selling it to someone else. I have to also say I was very pleasantly surprised when I visited his studio to drop off the ibex and deposit on the quality of his work. I'm seriously considering using him for my upcoming safari.

    Well I certainly don't think I would hesitate to use him for PG and my buffalo hunt. As well as his North American game. But if I am lucky enough to draw a tag in 2019 for leopard I would only use my guy in Pennsylvania or Dennis.
