    I have a giant cape that i've held onto for about 15 years. I tanned it myself but at the time my shaving skills sucked! It was a lutan f tan. My question is whats the safest way to rehydrate it (Its dried out considerably) and once hydrated can I go back over and re shave it? it has thick and thin in spots. By now the cape might be iffy but id like to at least try. The only reason for this is that it was my first big deer I harvested but family issues at the time made it impossble to mount. Back at it now and would really like to mount it.
