I have a friend that unthaws his coyote hides in water, then fleshes and splits the lips and then throws them back in the freezer until he is ready to tan them. Can I do the same with a bear hide and if so, how many times can I do this? Thank you. C.Owren

Thaw is unfreezing, bringing to room temp.
I would not run a heavy hide thru the freeze and thaw cycle but one time. Yes a light skin once wet will freeze quicker. But a heavy bear could take days to freeze and days to thaw, setting up a perfect plac3e for bacteria to live.
