Moose beard

Submitted by Pacemakr on 8/3/99. ( )

A customer gave me a "moose beard" and ask if I could tan it so he can save it. I was thinking of splitting it to the edges and turning it inside out like a deer ear to clean it out. My question: what's in it, does it need split and cleaned or can I auto-tan it as is? It's cut off with about a foot square of neck skin so it opens flat with the beard sealed. It's in a zip-lock bag frozen now.

Split it, salt it, tan it, card it, and the bell will turn out nicely.
