How long will it take for my buffalo hide to dry?

Submitted by Caspian on 11/14/00. ( Caspian@megsinet.com ) 208.143.23.141

I have two buffalo hides that were killed yesterday morning. I hosed them off, laced them on frames and cut off major pieces of fat and meat. Before i ended last night, i put a layer of salt on them.
I am planning on dry scrapping them. My question is, approxmatly how long will it take for them to dry stiff enough to dry scrape. temps. here are b/t 30-35 degrees.
Is there anything i can do to hurry the drying?
Will the remaining fat and meat rot before it dries?
Help please, i don't want to mess up two beautiful hides.

Thanks,
Chris
