    Yes........I just mix it the same as for a WT cape.........I shave the gland areas down to be sure the tan gets to it...............GL..............Tom

    The same formula for deer, but a larger batch. Antelope capes are a pain to keep in solution. I finally found some plastic trays that bedding plants came in to set on top of the solution and weight down with milk jugs full of used krowtann...they still will float to the top if given the chance. You want to keep folds and creases to a minimum. Antelope will easily sour in areas that are not exposed to the pickle or tan. They will slip in a New York second.
