I just salted a deer skin....what should it look like? Dryed out and hard with a leather feel to it? Drawn up a little? Moisture seems to be gone.

Hard like raw hide.

It will harden, remember raw hide has been used for shields against spears and arrows, so the flesh side normall shrinks a bit and will harden.
