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.
the skin is stabilized after pickle - neutralize and mount immediately or freeze - a lot of taxidermists do this w/o oiling
Are you saying without tanning at all?
