    I do my absolute best to list any minor/major flaws I find, but I am human and I may have over looked a few. Expect normal repair work such as bullet holes and minor skinning cuts even if they are not listed. I don't save Capes unless I am willing and able to make the repairs and use them on my customers mounts.

    My capes will NOT come with big chunks or thick flesh left on the lips, nose, and around the eye. I take my time when prepping my capes for the salt and tannery. There should be minimal face prep work on these capes.

    Normally I post pictures of the capes I'm selling (feel free to refer to my old For Sale posts). The reason I haven't today is I just haven't had time to thaw them all and get pictures. I am going off the detailed notes I took after they came back from the tannery and I test fit and sized them before freezing.

    ALL Capes are WET TANNED and FROZEN unless stated otherwise.

    ALL Capes Pedestal Length unless stated otherwise.

    #205. . . . Rocky Mountain Elk Cape. 11 3/4" -12" Eye to Nose, 28"-29" Neck (Middle of October Hair)

    No notes on this cape which usually means minor repairs such as bullet holes and possibly minor skinning cuts.

    #215. . . . Roosevelt Elk Cape. 12 1/4" Eye to Nose X 30"-32" Neck. (Early November Hair)

    * This cape is currently DRY TANNED so I am unable to get an actual neck measurment. But I guarantee it will go 30"-32".
    * Cape did not come off of a Bull with tons of mass.
    * Has roughly a 3"x3" rub on upper leg (easy repair).
    * The tip of one ear is split along the edge. Might be 1 1/2" in length (easy fix)
