at room temp. Resalt it after 24 hours. Do not freeze it because the salt won't let it freeze. In a month rehydrate it and proceed with tanning. There's gotta be an answer in the archive for this.
That is neccessary if you are going to salt dry it.
george has drilled this subject through many a peoples brain over and over, so its gotta be in there im sure umpteenth times. MATT,if you dont mind me asking, how did you phrase this question to the search archive?
George is not the only one thats drilled that in.
Better use the search or buy some books. Freeze it until you get them.
"salting deer", I did find one or two with the same question but no one later answered it. They also say that they are drying it and then going to the tanning process. Thanks
You weren't cooking them were you. You aren't salting DEER, you're salting HIDES. Try "salting hides". There are 984 entries in there and I'd bet, one or two of them tell you exactly what you need.
"salt and freeze" in the archives and the answer jumps out at you! not trying to tell you what to do, but try more than phrase before giving up! not only will you usually get just the right verbage after a few trys to get your answer, you also will stumble across so much other information you'll forget what the heck you were looking for in first place.
