Need Help with STAG

Submitted by dejayc2 on 1/15/06 at 10:08 AM. ( )

Trying to rehydrate a stag that came in very thick and hard. Soaked for a 16 hours in Rittels ultra soft it worked on the main part of the skin and face but around the ear butts is where I can not get it to soften so that I can invert the ears for fleshing any suggestions would be appreciated.

You didn't mention if you'd sweated the hide

After you soaked it (much too long in my estimation),it needed to be put in a plastic bag and sweated overnight. Did you?
