Gene,I soak my whitetail capes for app. 16-18 hours.I'm sure on smaller skins it would be a shorter time.Give Van Dykes a call,their always very helpful.
Tan them all the same! It doesnt make sense to stand there and pull them out as they appear tanned - too much work! Make it easy on yourself and simply stick by 16-20 hours. That way they will all be tanned and you will not have over tanned them.
Sure - the thinner lighter stuff will tan first - but leaving them there until the thicker fleshed pieces have tanned wont hurt them!
