Sure we all do this from time to time. People bring us a bad cape and want there deer mounted, no problem I buy a cape for them and mount as usual. But I will recomend you get a cape that might match your antlers, as to say a small rack would look better on a small neck size say 16" and go bigger as the rack goes. Though it may not the norm at times but so goes life.

tom, looks like your going through the same thing i am right now. I shot my first buck last year, 2x2 mulie with about the same dimensions you said. I wasn't into taxidermy at the time, so i tossed the cape. But, i found a guy on this forum who is selling me a 19" cape for my rack. This will be my first deer mount. If you would like, take down my email address, and we can comunicate through out our projects. I'll be getting some internet help from they guy who is selling the cape, so i could share my info with you. Good luck
