Bear Tan to mount

Submitted by Bummy on 02/13/2004. ( ) 65.130.60.137

I would like to know how difficult it is to tan a bear hide to mount on a half mount? I usually use Bruce Rittel's kwik-N-EZ tan. Bruce can you or someone give me advice?

KWIK-N-EZE will do an excellent job!

It should do an excellent job on that half mount - just remember to degrease it well while its pickled. Also - I learned the hard way years ago - flesh, salt and dry Bears hard before you relax and pickle them! Otherwise - expect slippage!


question for the master [bruce]
