A first for me

  1. I received two AIR Dried whitetail capes. Semi fleshed and nothing has been turned. They don't smell to bad or to good. I made a salt brine and rehydrated them so I could turn, flesh and resalt.

    Your thoughts. Good, bad ? Have you experienced this before?

    I've had that with deer flat skins and they turned out fine, I did as you did, soaked them in a brine solution and once hydrated fleshed them and then salted as normal. Haven't had to attempt it on a cape. Good luck.
