    Does anyone out there know the front corner of eye to antler burr general measurement for a medium sized mule deer?
    Mine is set up at 3 1/4 inches right now. Not sure if it is close. Would appreciate the help.

    Seems about right. Better yet, if you're using the original cape; do a test fit and let the cape be your "guide".

    Cape is in the freezer, trying to get the prep work done. I have cut the distance down to a bit over 3 inches. Will see what happens when I get the cape out. Thanks.

    From the back of the eye, I usually do about 2 finger's width.
