i have had the bobcat hide in the tanning solution for 5 days now. when i feel with a glove while in the solution it doesnt seem any different from when i first put it in. feels slimy and still raw. this is my first time so i am not sure what it should feel like. any suggestions? thanks

Did you follow the directions?

If you followed the directions it is tanned. gently tug on the fur a little and make sure it isn't slipping easily. The skin should be real white and any meat left on the hide should be dark brown. You need to nutralize that thing now. 5 days is a long time for a cat in the tann!

good luck


bobcat will tan in about 30 hrs in krowtann

don't try to make it complicated. Follow the directions and viola, you got it. Your ready to final flesh and thin, then you can mount or freeze.
Beleive it or not its very simple.
