Hey, I'm new to the whole taxidermy thing, and I have the hide off one of my heifers in my freezer. It's gonna be a after-school project to keep outta trouble, but I have no idea where to start! I know I have to soak it in something, and then flesh it, and then I think I have to cover it in lots and lots of salt... I'm pretty clueless! Is there a web site with step-by-step instructions, or could someone tell me what do to? Maybe? It would be very appreciated!

salt it first
look in the search catagory and try to be specific as there is tons of good info in there. I am not sure if tackling a hide of this type is keeping you out of trouble or asking for it but knock yourself out. You would be better off trying a smaller hide first and then move on from there. Best of luck to ya.
Thanks. I'll try that.
