Freezer Burn

Submitted by Tom on 2/12/01. ( ) 209.176.87.92

Can a freezer burnt hide be mounted? I was told that burnt hides
just need rehydrated? How do I tell if one is burnt? Are bird skins
the same? Any info would be appreciated.

They are and/or have dry spots

The dry spots or a dry hide will easily be seen. You can soak in Rittels Super Relaxer or place a rag with S/R on the spots. Have been told that Knoblochs has some good stuff for this.

I run them in my Auto-Tanner and it softens them fine. Once soft the can be tanned and mounted. Yes birds dry also, I have soften several of my bird this was injecting the head and wings, seems the feet soften fine in plain water.
