eye to nose measurement on caped deer

Submitted by Eric on 2/18/01. ( ) 209.18.22.121

I received 3 deer capes with just neck measurements.The necks are
23 inches. I layed the cape flat and measured the profile from tip of
nose to front corner of eye. It came to 81/4 on 2 of them and 8 inches
on another one. Do these measurements seem to large? Does anyone have
a suggestion on how else I can get this measurement?

Seems about right to me

Seems pretty close for a 23" neck (measured on the carcass). That's about the norm for the deer I get in. ...Rick


7.5 to 8.0 for most in the kansas area

It all depends on the subspecies you are dealing with? Here they would be about 6 3/4 to 7 1/2, but where I did live it would be 7.5 to 8.0 where do you live and I will bet someone knows.

Eric, I take my capes before ordering a form and trial fit them on spare forms or change out heads I have laying around. If your new to the hobby eventually you'll gain quite a collection of forms you had to reorder and didn't return to the supplier. Hope this helps!
