When is it Too far gone?

I was given several elk hides that were skined well but stored wrong. They are in bad shape, blueish and rancid. Is there any way to salvage them with lime or anything else or is there just no use?

I assume you dont wont any hair on these hides. Lime takes hair off. You might save the leather if you pickle at a real low ph. You probablly should trash them though.
