Ok, I am at my wits end here. I have several deer capes from golden state tannery that smell very bad and the hide paste does'nt seem to want to hold. I have washed, scubbed and tried everything I can think of and they still smell like ass and the glue will not hold. They smell like a mix of musty dirty laundry and a diry out house. They do not feel oily and when you wash them the water is very dirty. I took two small scraps of hide and super glued them together and let it dry, you can peel them apart. Any ideas?

you have some bad tanning, maybe urine tanning ?
