    Has anyone had any experience with African capes at Wildlife Fur Dressing, Inc in Ceres, CA?
     
  2. I bought a dry tanned Blesbok cape at the Texas Show, it felt like it has some nice stretch. So yesterday I tossed it in some water for about 30 minutes. Let is sweat for a couple hours, the cape really let out very well, still has plenty of stretch. I worked the eyes and nose yesterday afternoon. I think its going to mount up really well.

    Nope but I've recently been hearing good things about them. All tanneries now days seem to be a gamble though. Good luck.

    I've had them tan my African stuff for years. I like their wet tan.
