do I have to degrease a buffalo hide?

I have a smallish buffalo hide (apx 5x5,I think) that I insanely decided to tan.I am wondering if it automatically has to be degreased,or if that is a case by case thing.Any other tips on tanning this beast would be appreciated (unless you tell me to send it to the pros!)

I would send it off.

Considering all the work involved,it would probably be more cost effective to send it off.I personally don't tan anything bigger than bear,so I don't know if you would have to degrease a buffalo hide.
