Just mounted my own personal elk. I hung it in the new house that we bought and then had the carpet cleaned. The mount evedintly still has some salt or something in the hair because it is still drawing moisture from the air. The cape was tanned by a professional tannery who recently shut down due to retirement. I have used this tannery for 20+years and I've never heard of this problem before. Anybody know of anything to try? I've had fans blowing on it and the air conditioner running got it fairly dry yesterday but it fells a little damp again today.
