Hey guys Ive decided to pull one of my bobcats out of the freezer that has been in there for about 5 years. I caught mortal hell skinning the head. I soaked the head and cape in salt water overnight but couldn’t tell it did much. Finally this morning after quite a few injections and careful cutting I finally had success. Im planning on doing a shoulder pedestal mount. My question is now the head part of the cape is obviously pretty stiff from freezer burn. Can I salt the cape immediately as normal or do I need to soak in a salt water solution or possibly relaxer? Ive read about stop-rot but I do not have any on hand. Just want to know what the odds are on the cape being salvageable and what I can do to increase those odds. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
