After pickle, rinse it cool water,
wash it iin Dawn or Liquid Tied (if needed)
flesh it (again)
if needed return to pickle,allows you to shave it (again)
neutrilze it 2-5 0z. of sal soda or arm and hammer or
sodium bicarbonite for 20 -30 minutes.

THEN..tan or dp.. deep freeze, your choice.

WHY WOULD YOU DP A PICKLED HIDE? Geez guys, pickling goes with TANNING. DP is a stand alone. You guys may as well scroll down and use the dumber kerosene and baking soda listed there. I can't believe some of the stuff I read here.

here's another idea.....

the skin is stabilized after pickle - neutralize and mount immediately or freeze - a lot of taxidermists do this w/o oiling

Without tanning at all?
