    That is one I don't think I would recreate to original. Unless the customer was hell bent on it. I once had a GSD that had a spotty nose just like that.

    That was the first thing I asked, but he wants a regular looking whitetail. The big thing is this thing has about a 1" X 3" damaged area on the bridge of the nose. As long as I don't loose any more fur, I think we will be alright. This is a doe that was brought in to mount with a buck he brought in last week.

    From the looks of the white hairs next to that new damage Id say shes done it before. Is she a captive deer, or was she taken near some kind of fence? Cool nose too.

    This was a wild deer. I've been having problems with a particular butcher, and I'm thinking he had this hanging upside down with it's head dragging on the ground. I have got in several deer with short briskets, and all of them have knife cuts through out the capes. I pulled it together on top and it looks like I shouldn't have a problem getting it together, "if" more fur doesn't peel away from the damage. Stop Rot was applied to the area. He was bent on this cape, and knows it may be a waste of time. He is a customer who I've done several deer for, runs the archery department in a local sports store, and is enough of a friend that he helped me track a deer this year. I don't mind trying to make this work for him if it can.
     
  13. What a unique doe Wayne! To bad he didn't want to make the nose as it was ??? Oh well, you'll make her look fantastic I'm sure.
