Joe, you need to leave the animal in there at least 3 days. You really dont need to neutralize him befor you flesh him for the final time, do it strait out of the pickle. Then neutralize him. All you will really have to do is pull the remaining membran and meat with your fingers. While the critter id under a low PH, it should be real easy. If you have some flesh work to do to the face, do that then too. After you have the hide the way you want it then neutralize him, wash him, dry him, tan him. You should be fine.

would you go through all that work for a squirrel. The profit on a squirrel is little enough, Just DP and mount.

thanks guys
