im not a taxidermist, just a simple flesher. why do some taxidermist care what the underside of a deer cape looks like ? you cant see it. some want it smooth. why ? you scuff sand a form ? fit , form ,and function is the same. some want there capes so thin you can see through them but don't want to pay for the extra time it takes to get it that way. I realize the thinner the cape the easier it is to show off muscle tone and all, but frankly I have yet to see a deer in the wild that looks like he just got back from the gym. again, im no taxidermist, but I do know some that couldn't use a fleshing machine if there life depended on it. but want to complain about the price. just had a few questions. sorry for the rant, had a fellow flesher in GA. tell one of my customers he wanted to put me out of business and wanted all of his capes and undercut me by 15 bucks a cape.
