Sorry to do this to you Craig but the answer is "yes". Sometimes the slippage can be like a plague spreding all over or it could stay in one spot like you mentioned. I have found that usually the spot is the main effected area with maybe a few small other spots being effected. One piece of advice, when re-hydrating your cape be sure and use a GOOD bacteriacide like Basycryl NBKU and it will help stop the slippage from becoming worse. Good Luck.

if you are lucky the person who fleshed the boar did not flesh the plate on the shoulder very well and this caused the salt to not affect this area. at times the shoulder plate is a very tough area to clean properly on older boar. i feel cleaning this area may have helped as long as your client did not leave the boar to bacteria before salting . as is the case with alot of critters with people whodo not know
