I sell a lot of capes and hides on the forums but it seems that a lot of people see the word "cape" and think that it means "lifesize mountable"? So just to get things straight it is safe to assume that when someone list a white tail cape or a coyote cape or any other "cape" that it is the front shoulders and the head of the animal, and not be confused with L/S mountable hide, or even Coyote Hide or White Tail Hide for full body mount. The measurements given should be a pretty good clue too. If you see a N/E nose to eye, neck, eye measurement chances are that is just a "Cape" and not a L/S life size mountable hide other wise you would see a N/T nose to tail and a Circ. circumference measurement too. Just some helpful info for anyone that might be confused or just don't know. Good Luck Dan
