TANING A FOX

I AM HAVING TROUBLE TANING A FOX,IT WAS NORMALY PICKLED AND EZ100
TANNED AND THE OIL WAS PRO PLUS, THE PELT LOOKED NICE.
I NEVER TUMBLED IT, JUST LET IT DRY UNTIL IT WAS TIME TO MOUNT.

SURPRISE, I SOAKED THE PELT IN WATER WITH SOME SALT BUT WHEN
TRIED TO MOUNT IT THE LEGS WERE TEARED OFF.

DO SOMEONE KNOW WHY?

I HAVE BEEN TRYING THE SAME METHOD ON DEER SUCCESFULY

acid swell ?

You could of have some acid swell. Your hide may not off been neturilized long enough or you shaved them to thin. It's only a guess cause we don't have the hide to really say what went wrong.

I also use ez-100 so I do know how it works and I enjoy the tan. I've tanned weasels to life-size deer with it and never had any troubles.

I learned long ago how to tan, but fell a little rusty. Would you please, if you have time, write step by step how to tan so that I know I haven't left anything out before I start.
