I was watching your new video on Boar mounting. Very good tape, best I've seen ! My question is, that you didn't thin on the machine after tanning. Is that because the skin is so thin ? I've never fooled with a hog, but the skin looks much different then a deer.

Thinning cape

Marc, I'm glad you enjoyed the video. Thanks for the nice comments. The cape was fleshed green and I must have thought it was thin enough or I would have shaved it down some more. It all depends on how thin you need the hide to be. If I were competing I would have definitely shaved it twice. I like getting the shield off before I tan a pig.
