The turn around time was way to long. Couldn't get my skins back on time, and when there was a problem, they wouldn't send a smoke signal back. They claimed the slow turn around was due to bad weather, or the fleshing women had bad teeth. The skins I did get back smelled of smoke, the only thing I could do with them was to make cloths and crafts, not good for taxidermy.

I guess you really have a problem with native american. I hope someday you will look at them as brothers.
On this web site many people write about this person selling something that they shouldn't, but I don't hear about what race they are, or about someone that didn't get there animals back.
Maybe you need to gear down alittle. Maybe the world would be better.
later

I have no problems with Native Americans, seems one has a problem with sarcastic humor.
This is a modern taxidermy site promoting modern tanning and mounting techniques. The old Indian way of tanning will be found on another site under brain tanning, or in old world history somewhere.

You didn't read the question! He asked if "ANYONE" has ever used the Indian ways of tanning. You should have just said "YES"

The Indians did this method for all there tanning.

Brain tanned deer skins. Brain tanning takes time and alot of work. Smoking the hide changes the nature of the hide fibers, keeps bugs out and makes the hide washable. Fleshing is done with a knife not teeth!
The Native American way has been known to last 100's of years, just look at the Smithsonian Museum for examples.
This forum is for information, not attacking people!


This is a website for brain tanning
