Sure sounds like bad hides already. Where are they slipping from?
If the whole hide slips you just as well get rid off them. The people that gave you them handled the deer poorly-( Heat ) You could try to flesh them lightly and salt them for 24 hrs then shake off and resalt for 24 more. Then let them dry. This may aid in setting most of the hair but no guarantees. You can try stop slip and other products out there but who knows how the hides were handled.

Allan,if the deer hung outside for three days in 60 degrees,I would highly recommend that you politely decline any dinner invitations they may give you regarding those deer....just a suggestion though Good Luck. Marc
