The worst Idoized salt will do is stain your pelt. I never had any trouble with it before. It can take up to 10 to 15 pounds of salt to dry a skin out depending on the thickness of the hide.
The best way to save the pelt intill you get home is to get all the meat off the hide with a dull knife being careful not to cut the skin. Then apply a think coat of salt to the hide and roll it up. Try to keep as cool as possble. Check the salt every few days. If it looks nasty change the salt out. Im glad your going to use the skin! Honor the animals by useing every scrap!
I never tryed that method but but more then you think you will ever need. Better to have too much then not enough!
