Is one week sufficient time for a deer head to dry before doing your finishing work?

Bill, it all depends on your environment,If you use a tanned cape and do your work in a heated shop one week MIGHT be OK but I would wait two week to be sure DON'T rush quality work. I check my mounts using a sharp awl kinda scrstching on the hide and listen for a dry type sound, wet areas will have a dull type scratch. if that makes any sence.I asume we are talking about a deer mount.Good luck and keep up with the net it will keep you on the learning trail
