After you degrease I would place it back overnight in the pickle then neturlize it. From there I would tan it as anything else. But why deal with that grease from a bear. UCK, that's why I send them to the tannery. Let them deal with that mess!

Yes Liqua Tan it

Yes you can LIQUA TAN it, but like Frank said make sure you degrease it.
Bears tan up great! other than degreasing they work pretty much
