Tell us about yourself!
Thanks for the info. I feel comfortable going out to the field now and coming back with workable hides. I bought a book called Deerskins into Buckskins by Matt Richards. It is pretty informative too.
Thanks for the speedy reply. I have never tried brain tanning and will do so this season. I think that my wood burning stove that I use in my wall tent will work perfectly for smoking the hides.Follow up questions: I have heard mixed reviews about using iodized salt versus noniodized salt. I can buy iodized salt in bulk pretty easily. Not so easy to find noniodized salt in Dallas. What is your take on the subject? AND, about how much salt will I need to salt one typical sized deer?Thanks
I am a deer hunter and we have always thrown away the pelts after skinning. I want to make buckskin out of them instead. How do I need to prepare the pelt at camp until I can get it home (about 5 days)? I don't want to come home with ruined pelts. thanks
