Those cream tans. They do have a higher likelyhood of slippage problems, probably because of the no pickle stage. Yes, I would pickle it and use a brush on tan or Lutan FN.
For a lifesize deer, that's an investment of time as well as money. Chancing any "home tan" could be even more costly. Send it out.
