What is the method for re-hydrating a freezer burned deer skin? The skin is about 25% burned.

Stop Rot on the freezer burned portions of the hide, and then refrigerate overnight. That usually does the trick. Remember, freezer burned areas are already void of moisture, so if you can't get it all re-hydrated, flesh, salt, and pickle as usual. It should be just fine.
