    Never had much luck with dry tanned capes. I could never get them rehydrated enough to make a good mount out of them.
     

  3. I rehydrate them in 5 gallons of water, with one pound of salt per gallon of water. Soak 12-15 hours…then I squeeze them out and let them hang and drip for an hour. Then I roll them up, put them in a plastic shopping bag and put them in the refrigerator to sweat for 12 hours. They come out completely rehydrated and perfectly pliable. They mount up really well.
