I am about to prepare a deer cape but i noticed that a portion of the hair is pressed in the opposite direction, how do i get it back to the regular way? any help would be awesoem before i start salting/pickling.

Don't worry about it

As of right now it's not a problem. You have to do all the other steps first and during that time of rehydration and pickling the hair should go back to it's normal self.
If after mounting it doesn't it could be a hair colic and then there's not much you can do. What you can try is hair jel. Go to any Sallies beauty supply house or Walmart and get the cheapest hair setting jel. Comb this into the hair and that may keep it there till it dries.
