While salted does it have to be rolled up or is it ok to stretch it flat.

Ive seen it done both ways . I always lay mine flat on a rack that I built . Seems to dry the capes a little faster than rolling . Also gives the liquid a chance to drain easier . Ive have seen liquid get trapped in pockets that are created when you roll up a hide .
