Chuck, I am thinking that the hide got thawed and frozen more times than I was told as it came from michigan and I am in south carolina and just got it. I never got to the point of tanning it. I skinned it out, thinned the lips and turned the ears when it it started falling out in clumps. I purchased some stuff from Van Dykes to help prevent more hair loss but it was too far gone.
