Hi. I have some capes that just arrived from Africa. I have limited space at the moment for shoulder mounts and am planning on having the capes tanned and then storing them with the hope of having shoulder mounts made in the future. I have heard, both from other hunters and taxidermists, a few different versions of what I should do. Some say that tanning the capes is enough and they should just be stored in plastic and they can be mounted years later; others said that you can tan them, but then they need to be frozen and will last for years that way; others say that they could be tanned and then need to be dipped in a special solution and then stored in a freezer by the taxidermist if I plan to mount them in the future. I would appreciate any advice or input on this and if anyone has done any of the methods described above I would like to hear about the end result. Thanks!
