To ensure the best cape for your trophy mount, follow the instructions below while in the field.  Perform these field care steps before taking to a processor.


  1. After field dressing your trophy, make a cut around the knee joints of both  front legs.
  2. The second cut is made on the back of the legs from cut #1 to the arm pits.
  3. Make the third cut from the end of cut #2 to the rear of the animal - about 5 inches.
  4. Make the fourth cut around the body of the animal, top to bottom.
  5. STOP and bring all of the hide toward the head of the animal after skinning.
