    I have a deer cape wet tanned with ez 100 and frozen, measurements would need to be taken and form ordered,can it be refrozen? or what would be the best way to care for this cape?

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Thaw it, measure it, refreeze it. It's tanned.
     

  3. You can do what george said or let it hang and completely dry out. Then when it comes time to mount the deer, drop the hide in a bucket of water to rehydrate it.

    rorre, he could, however, that would be rather foolish. Do as George said, he is dead on.
