NEED TO KNOW HOW TO TAN AN AIR DRIED WOLF

Submitted by CDHaislip on 5/16/01. ( CDHaislip@worldnet.att.net ) 12.83.82.133

I bought a wolf from Alaska and it came stretch and air-dried.

I don't know what method to use to tan it. I have an automatic-
tanner and usually mix certain chemicals for raw skin.

This is a first for me.

Thank you.

Rehydrate the hide in some water w\salt and either use Enzol B or Rittel's Ultra soft. 2 pds of salt to a gallon of water will rehydrate the hide. After that you will have a raw hide and you will be able to tan it as usuall.


Relax R will work too

You can also use Knoblochs Relax R at a ratio of 1/2 oz per gallon of
water in your rehydration bath, or the enzol B . You can tan it with
Para Tan in you auto tanner, using 1oz of tan to each pound of skin,
run in your tanner.
