Never allow meat to sit unprotected in the field or during the home aging process.

Spread salt evenly to raw side of cape, this draws moisture to the surface of the cape allowing water to run off, retarding spoilage.
Your Cape may possibly be just as import as the meat, be sure to salt your cap to prevent spoilage
If the hide is not cared for the hair will slip, rendering useless for mounting. Salt is widely used and known to dry out the hide slowing down the spoilage process.
Tip: Spread salt evenly to raw side of cape, this draws moisture to the surface of the cape allowing water to run off, retarding spoilage. Purchase salt at destination town/city. Purchase any salt type.
Estimated Salt Required: Moose 15 lbs, Caribou 8-10 lbs, Bear - Black15 lbs - Grizzly 20 - Brown 35, Elk 15 lbs, Deer 8 lbs. Spread salt evenly to raw side of cape, this draws moisture to the surface of the cape allowing water to run off, retarding spoilage.
It's best to deflesh that cape at least within a day or two of kill, remove all meat throughout the cape, do the same with the head area, cut away as much as possible around the ears and nose area. No need in turning out the ears or nose, just be sure to apply lots of salt in this area. Before salting be sure to remove all meat and fat parts then spread a forth of the bag of salt on the cape, doing this during the last part of the day is best (fewer bugs). Be sure to salt the eyes and inner part of the nose area and outer portion of the nostrils.
Let sit over night, the next day roll the cape flesh to flesh, lay the legs part and chest area inward, then start with the head, roll the head toward the back.
The next day spread the cape over brush with a slight tilt so water can drain off, lightly salt the cape. Keep in mind the salt bag should contain enough salt for two capes (for Moose), pending species.
In your magnum pack you have a cape bag for transporting the cape, if you don't have a cape bag you can use para cord to tie the bundle together. The down side is you don't have the same bug protection as you would with a cape bag. These can be purchased separately (see single quarter bag). A cape bag makes for much easier transporting!
