First African Cape

Submitted by Dave Jones on 12/23/00. ( )

I just received my first African cape,(bush hog),and it came to me salted.The person that brought the cape said that they use some sort of acid along with the salt.What are the steps I need to take to tan This cape myself or am I better off sending it to a tannery? Also am I better off using an artificial nose or the real one? One more question,does anyone have reference photos of an african bush hog? Thanks!

Among the 80 color photos contained in the book, Pigs and Wild Boars by Ben Sonder, a number of them are of African wild pigs including the bush pig. This hard cover book is inexpensive too, only $10.95.
