brittle hair

Submitted by jason cook on 12/24/05 at 3:45 PM. ( )

just mounted an old deer, the hair isnt slipping, but it seems a little brittle. i was grooming it and alot of hair was coming out. so i checked out the cut off to see if it was slipping, its not, but if you pull on it or brush it a lot of the hairs are breaking off about 1/4 inch from the skin. the hair is about 1 1/2 inches long. just wondering if its something im doing wrong maybe in the tanning procces. i have been using krowtan 2000

pulling and brushing so hard. I wait to groom the mounts until after they are dried. I am not saying I don't groom as I go along but you don't have to groom the hell out if either.
