I just had sew a brisket back in to 3 Dall sheep capes from last year before they could be used.
They had plenty of back on them but the entire Brisket & armpits were cut off.
Easy thing to remember, lay your animal on its side, find the last rib , go three ribs forward & cut a circle around the animal.
We need everthing forward of that line for a pedistal, half lifesize, or a shoulder mount.
Remember when splitting him up the back that his shoulders are even so your not cutting down the side of the shoulder.
NEVER CUT THE HEAD OFF OR CUT THE NECK !!!!
I do not charge anything for skinning my clients trophies so if you want & its easier bring it in unskinned & I will show you how to do it properly.
