I have an electric dryer that I converted to a Tumbler.
My question is,How much sawdust should I put in to tumble Deer
capes ( I'm doing only 1 at a time)If any one can advise I would
be much grateful. Thank You

Many years ago, when I used one of those for deer, I just filled it
to the bottom of the door. Of course, that level will vary depending
on the brand and size of your dryer. but this really isn't a critical situation- fill it to the door, tumble a skin(only one at a time), if it isn't drying good after about 5 minutes, then you probably should use more tumble mix next time. (also, if you are doing multiple skins, you should replace or refresh your tumble mix between each one----just to make sure it stays dry)

hope that helps
Dave
