I have been playing around with tanning deerhides for several years, with hair attached, and more recently with the hair removed. What is the best way to make the hide soft and supple? I've been searching for websites but haven't had much success in finding my answer. Any help or suggestons would be appreciated. Thanks.

Reference staking and tumbling hides.
www.taxidermyweb.com and then look up the article by Bruce Rittel on softening hides. As long asa you are there , look at all of the articles !
Stretch out those fibers! But I'm a just a braintanner, so what do I know :)
Go to www.braintan.com. They can help you there.
When you get to the site, got to the "hideout" it is an ongoing forum with lots of good info.
