I just a got a call from my taxidermist that my cape made it back from the tannery in great shape. He said that I might want to swing by and take a look at it to see if I want him to bleach it. I'm a fan of natural coloration within reason, and think I will go that way, but I haven't seen the cape yet. It looked great to me before sending it off, but I don't know how much the tanning process affects the color. I'm curious as to what you guys prefer, and if you could post some photos of your mounts and say if they are bleached or not. Thanks in advance.
