John/Bruce-
Thanks a million for the help on the thin hide fleshing. I did the
first salt, and most of the junk came off. Right now it is drying
hard. I am curious though, it's already showing blue through thehide,
can I still shave it after 1st pickle? I know I keep bugging about
this, just paranoid about blowing a hole in it.

just fleshing the face and areas that need it? I really
appreciate the help. Would you elaborate on the quick pickle?
Should I shorten the time in the pickle?
