I just mounted my first deer cape of the year. This cape was wet tanned by Dave at Misty Ridge Tannery. WOW! The cape mounted like a dream. Not one hole to fix either. I get the capes to Misty Ridge green frozen, he turns them, salts them, AND completely detail shaves each cape. It saves me a ton of time and well worth it at $69 a cape. Capes are shaved even and THIN and have plenty of stretch. Great turnaround also. Dave is a gentleman to deal with to boot. If you try his tan I doubt you'll ever want to change tanneries again.

helped me too! ran out of freezer space took some whole frozen coyotes there, he skun them turned tanned and sent them back ready to mount in 3 wks, super job great guy to do buisness with, ought to be more like him in this buisiness!
i must be behind the times, I thought most tannerys charge about $30. to tan a deer cape.
These guys are dumping them off raw. Tanneries at that price just tan. Boy youre getting old, Wilson...lol!
I never have got that; time is money thing either, must have something to do with Old but I have a lot of trouble paying someone else my money for doing something, I do for a living.
Is it just me ; I see the young going to out sourcing all their work, then whining because they have none.
