Slide1

Field Care of Mountain SheepSlide2

Avoid dragging your

sheep

If the sheep must be moved, roll it onto a heavy tarp before

dragging

Lifting the sheep is

idealSlide3

Begin skinning as soon as

possible

Delaying

skinning increases the chance of

spoilageSlide4

SkinningSlide5

Remove as much meat from the hide as you can and completely open the

neck

“Tubed” necks and excess meat promote

spoilageSlide6

Leave skinning of head and hooves to your

taxidermistSlide7

Ask your taxidermist how best to cut the cape for the mount you

wantSlide8

Care of the CapeSlide9

Place the skinned cape hair down in the

shade to cool

Direct

sunlight can

destroy the

capeSlide10

Transport the cape in a burlap sack or breathable deer

bag

Bagging the cape protects hair from packing ropes and

strapsSlide11

Plastic bags trap heat and moisture, and should not be used in the

fieldSlide12

At camp,

clean

any blood off the hair and horns with

waterSlide13

Rub a

non-iodized

salt onto the flesh side of the

cape

Canning salt works

well, and is available at most grocery storesSlide14

Hang the cape in a cool place to

drip

After about 2 hours,

re-salt

Avoid over drying the cape to the point of

stiffnessSlide15

Fold up the salted cape and put on ice if

availableSlide16

If you will be freezing the cape, place it in a plastic bag

first

This prevents hair from sticking to the inside of the

freezerSlide17

Transport the cape to your taxidermist as soon as possible

Pack it on ice for the

tripSlide18
