Air dried fur

I have a bobcat that I skinned and stretched to sell. Now I have decided to tan it. What do I need to do to ? Can I just use Ultra-soft to relax it then salt it down then go to the pickle?

Just rehydrate it in the ultra-soft rinse well and then place it right in the pickle. No need to salt if you already air dried it.
Pickle it for three days, shave, degrease, place back in the pickle for another day, drain, neturlize it, rinse and then tan it. After the tan oil it and your ready to mount it.
