    I've got 3 WT deer capes tanning at the moment. I've got a serious surgery waiting for me in a few days.... I was wondering, how long can a deer cape stay in a Krowtann solution? Look's like I will be laid up for a few months... Please advise

    Take out let drip free and bag wet and freeze, when your ready take out and put back in new batch , pick up we’re you left off .

    13 point, they're already tanned as of 4 days ago. I was planning on neutralizing them, washing, finish fleshing, and mounting them, but I got hurt and now I need surgery... Do I need to get them out, or can they stay in the Krowtann solution for awhile, while I heal for a few months? Or do I need to rush and get them out, ASAP, neutralize them and wash and then freeze till I get better?

    I’m saying just bag and freeze as is and pk up we’re you left off when better ( suspend in time kinda thing ) , i just wouldn’t leave in for few months , not saying you can’t but , better in freezer with no worries. Of course finishing them would be best but your hurt , so freeze and get better
