Super Glue

Duane, I use a wet tan on my hides(Rhinehart Tanning cream) and super glue works great for holding the lip skin in the mouth. Use a combo of super gluing it in and holding it with pins for a couple of days. Good luck!!!


No problem

I do nothing but wet tan and do several open mouth deer each year. In fact, I did one yesterday...the new Joe Meder Flehming buck from Tom Powell Supply (if you guys havent mounted on a Joe Meder form yet, you have got to try it...a little tight in the shoulder for a southern whitetail, but the struggle is worth the results). Super glue at the lipline holds just fine on a wet tan.
