I am going to use Krowtann for the first time. I have already salted my deer hides, is this going to be a problem? PLEASE help me out a little.
Thanks... Anna

Not a problem

Won't cause you any problem, just shake off any excess salt and if they are dried hard you will need to soak them in plain water for a little while to soften them up before putting them in the Krowtann.

Plain Water?

Rehydrate only in a brine solution! 1 LB of salt to every gallon of water.

skins directly into krowtann - no need to rehydrate - that is what happesns in krowtann

stick to one manufacturer if you can

in general try to stick to one manufacturers stuff
oil probably does not matter but im no expert
i use the krowoil and could not imagine getting better results
fantastic stretch and almost non existent shrink
