It seems to average about 45 min for me. I've been at it about 13 yrs. I could work faster but then I end up cutting holes where they don't belong. That includes in my fingers and that's no fun.

1) I can't think of a reason to pre soak a hide to flesh it. I have fleshed hundreds and never pre soaked. Maybe freezer burn?

2) you can, however, I prefer to salt and and rehydrate the cape with a little Kemal 4 before I put it into the pickle.

I have tried no salt, salt water brine before pickle, salting over night then rehydrate and into the pickle, salting hard, and dry but still pliable. I prefer to do the last two, hard or dry but pliable.

It is not a lynx, but a western Oregon bobcat by the tag. I am pretty sure that I mounted this many many years ago.

Bird Taxidermy / Re: Leg injecting and building up...

The big deal is that when mounting anything, I believe one should at least try to replicate nature. You do a bird with shrunken, skinny, un natural looking feet and they bring that home and set it down by the bird that another taxidermist plumped up the feet and those feet will shine like a beacon and you will have to explain why you are cutting corners. Then again 50 years and no complaints and I assume at least some are repeat customers, I guess, is all the justification you need.

 I for one, hate the looks of shrunken feet about as much, maybe more, as over plumped ones.

When I was a kid I remember asking my dad's buddy why some of his ducks had such skinny toes. He said "different taximan".

I had an allpaca tanned by a commercial tannery. Was very disappointed. It came back matted and greasy looking. I talked to them and they say it is full of natural lanolin and don't know how to get it cleaner. Does anyone have any experience on how to clean up the lanolin?

Your right about who cares but for me it's one of those things......   I know it's there and even though it may not be seen or realized by others, I still know it's there and that bothers me.  I can do a job and cover up a lot but if I know there's a problem well ....  again it bothers me.   Some I can fix, some I try to fix and others I just get simply mad at myself for the mistake......    Just a  personal thing.
