Is there any good instructional DVD's on caping out there? I am hoping to take my first goat this year and id like to do a half mount of i kill one. Skinned lots of animals but I have nothing on the wall, so i havent taken much care.

THe last thing i want to do isscrew up the goat cape.

A local taxidermist here has put one out, it's 90 minutes long and involves a stone ram, will let you know if it's any good once I get a chance to look at it.

It may be too late in the year to do it now, but I'd go talk to a local taxidermist and see if you can hang out there and get some training in exchange for your labors. Nothing beats doing it. Just make it clear you're looking to learn how to skin/cape and maybe split/turn/salt. He/she may not be willing if they think you're looking to learn the mounting end of the process.
