What is the best way to thaw out a frozen Pig head on a cape without worring about bacteria setting in or future slippage.

Having handled thousands of boar capes over the years I can honestly say that a boar cape is one of the hrdest animals to have slip on you.

As long as you keep it out of direct hear it should be ready to cape in a couple of days and be jsut fine.

You cant lose them as fast as a deer cape.


Thank you Matt

I've said the same thing but people always looked at me like I was crazy. I honestly don't think they're capable of "slipping". One guy I know lays the caped out pig over a fence for a week before fleshing. He says it "loosens up the sheath and fat". I think it just rots. LOL

I've done tons of'em. The outer dermis will slip, but the hair just wont. Those damn folicles are so deep in the skin.
