Salting boar hide?

Submitted by AJ on 2/23/05 at 8:40 PM. ( ) 198.93.211.24

I'm preparing a boar hide to send to a tannery (my first one). I salted it sunday morning and I'm on my fourth day of salting and it still seem a little moist and not drying from the neck down. Do i have anything to be concerned about? When I think moist,.... I think chance for spoil! is that right?

Did you flesh it down as thin as you can get it?

I put 4 into the salt Monday and they are dried 80% hard today.

It sounds like you didnt thin them enough.
