    Deer/animal capes/headskins

    I flew up to NSW for a fallow hunt last week and had a salted dripping headskin to pack in my suitcase.I said to the mate "i will roll it in several plastic bags" He said " F### that,I will cryovac it for your.

    Well how about that the full cape when done measured 470 mm long x 30 mm thick and of course was super sealed..excellent idea!

    The deer.



    The cape,yes a full shoulder mount size.


    "you nae be needing these no more"
    I said as I slipped the knife through the cord

    Wonderful looking Fallow John well worth a shoulder mount, and a great way to transport the cape.

    .......I can imagine that blood dripping out of your luggage may raise a few eyebrows!!

    Blood dripping out of luggage? Sounds like my last trip through Heathrow...there had been 500 KILOS of illegal bushmeat seized that week alone (and that's what they found!!) British biosecurity? We need to take a lesson Johngryphon's countrymen (NZ are also red hot too)
