tanning bobcat

Submitted by mike on 1/13/06 at 7:09 PM. ( eightpthntr71@yahoo.com )

I use McKenzie tan and usually follow directions completely. My ? is,does a bobcat need to stay in pickle for 3 days or do you guys/gals think 2 would be enough? I was planning on mounting Monday evening if at all possible.Also should I return it to pickle after fleshing,or neutralize and apply tan? If to risky I'll just follow directions. Thanks for all the help in the past! I,m not a beginner been mounting about 10 years but learning something new every day,just learned about this site a couple weeks ago.

This is my first time to tan anything(Bobcat). I talked to a McKenize taxidermist today and he said to flesh,put back in the pickle,neutralize for only 10 min,put tan on a leave it overnight and tumble next morning and mount. I dont know about a 2 day tan maybe someone else can help you there. Jeff
