I'm hoping to get some feedback on recent experiences with alternatives to salt for preserving capes in the field. I'll be floating a river for moose/caribou out of the Brooks next September, beginning on the 10th. I have a 90lb limit for personal gear, which includes any preservatives for capes. I haven't yet dissected my gear list to see where I'm at against the limit, but I know I won't have room for the recommended 35lbs of salt (for only one salting!) for a moose and a 'bou.
I've found a few accounts of success using STOP-ROT, and TTC is another alternative that seems to have more shortcomings. Knowing that salting is the best practice, have any of these other options gained enough reputation to be considered viable alternatives for use on weight-limited hunting trips?
Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions you can offer.
