hi, i have never tried to mount one ,but i want to learn,ihave 8 nounts hanging,and i want to try,i already caped my buck ,skinned the face,but havent split the ears,so far so good (i think).my guestion is in cabelas i ordered the complete kit to mount your deer for 79.99,and it comes with a 2 hr video and comes from Van Dykes so i found there web site and they sell the kit (- video) for 39.99?has anyone used one of these? and i also bought a video made by Coyt Jordon on "mounting a whitetail deer" and i watched it and he washes the cape in dawn dish soap and rinse it out then rubs Borax all over it then buts it on the form,i though you had to use a pickle first?and if so whats a brand name i read to use saltee acid then liqua tan,
i guess im kinda nervous and dont want to screw up to bad thanks folks!

Don't need to pickle with borax, just how old are those books? I would recommend you click on that orange button over there to the left and do some further research. Marc R

...two years ago on my first mount & was very pleased with the results. Unfortunatly, I didn't find this forum until after I had finished the mount. The kit was fine, but my technique was lacking in the eyes, ears & lip areas. I'd suggest searching the archives for thousands of tips & techniques from the pros & your results will be much better!
