Yes, should cover all of your questions. Caribou are just as easy as deer once you have done a couple, good luck

bou questions

there is not a lot of difference from a bou and a whitetail, as far as the tanning process goes. you might find that the bou is even a little thinner skin than a deer. the only real measurement i worry about is the neck. i`ll try to save you some time and money before you start ordering forms. make sure the measurement you take is the same place that the form company takes there measurements. i usually will go an inch smaller if there is any questions. the nose to eye will not be a problem 95% of the time. earliners, im a bondo guy so i won`t go there. however i wouldn`t put deer liners in a caribou,i think they are shaped different enough that trimming them would be quite a task. freezing the cape should be no problem. hope i`ve helped. good luck.
