How mich is a cape worth

Submitted by Jim P. on 2/12/01. ( ) 136.141.2.14

I read in an earlier post that a guy paid 195 bucks for a 7 1/2 x 21 deer cape. Is this what I can expect to pay for a cape in the event a cape is lost at the tannery or I somehow lose one. If so I have been way underinsuring my packages at the post office.

supplie and demand

I would say this all goes back to supplie and demand. I have had years where I would pay the price of what I charge for a wt deer shoulder mount ,just for the cape. If I really needed it that bad. And really wanted the client off my a--.Then there are years that I can pick up 21" cape for $30.00 raw. all depends on how bad and how readily available capes are when you need them.


shop around

He is right how bad do you want it. But if you shop around a cape that size could be had for much less. I look for a fair price for a large cape expect to pay for it 21 is not that large but a nice size cape. Try buying a 23 or 24 inch cape at the C measurement tanned.ed
