    If I had kudu horns but no cape, is it possible to obtain a cape somewhere and use the horns to produce a shoulder or pedestal mount? I figured one of the taxidermists on this site would know if this is feasible.

    Most taxidermists have various capes and hides available onsite.

    I have stock kudu capes. ALL SIZES at least a dozen for client remounts had bad taxidermy done or capes that were crappy and not taken care of properly . May have one of 2 to buy outright if you don't use me for it. Use me its cheap 250 + the mount, But outright 450 plus shipping.
