I was just wondering if I soaked my coon in salted water, is that pickleing? Im not the brightest person so im not sure if that would be pickleing. Thanks

You need a Book on Tanning!

No it's not pickling. Pickling also involves adding an Acid to the Salt bath. The Acid is what firms the skin for easy shaving, and preserves it temporarily until you are ready to prepare it for tanning later. Try to get your hands on a good Tanning Book. It should be very helpful and answer a lot of your questions. I suggest the Book "Tan Your Hide". Most suppliers including ourselves, carry it in stock.
