Pickleing

I have a deer cape that I've had salted for a day now. Should I resalt then pickle or could I resalt and freeze it until I get the pickle solution from a supplyer?

You can just leave in the salt or hang it to dry hard the rehydrate when you have your acid. You can leave dried for a long time if need be. good luck


be sure to resalt

The method of salting is salt for 24 hrs shake off and then resalt. Let dry rock hard till your ready to work on it.
From there rehydrate in Rittel's Ultra Soft, rinse well and then place it in the pickle.
