I was wondering if you tan a coon hide, do you have to mount it right away or can it be froze until ready? this is going to be my first attempt to tan something and i don't want to buy the $40 manikin in case something goes wrong, but if you can't freeze it after everything goes okay, i won't be able to wait to order it then. Does this make sence?

It is fine to freeze a tanned hide.

Have frozen many of them over the years and will freeze somemore when needed. They may dry a little but will readily soak up and rehydrate when needed.

What steps should I take after it is tanned and frozen and then thawed again to be mounted?


Mount it.
