krowtann 2000 salting questions

Submitted by Jody on 3/24/06 at 4:14 PM. ( )

Hi Guys, I have never used krowtann 2000 before but just ordered my first batch of it. I have a fox and a badger that I will be skinning out this weekend and have not received the krowtann 2000 yet. I know that the great thing about this stuff is that you don't have to salt the hide. does anyone see any problems with salting the hide and letting the hide dry until I get the krowtann 2000 and then putting the hide in the solution. I only wanted to do this because I don't get much time to work on this stuff and really wanted to get them skinned out his weekend. Any help would be great.

You can skin,turn and flesh then layout fairly flat and refreeze. When your supplies show pull, thaw and throw in the tan.
You can salt dry as well you just have to rehydrate before you place in the tan.
good luck to you

I called and asked them that same thing one time.

Their recondemation was to place in the freezer until the krowtann arived. they said by salting dry although it could be done, you may not get the same strech. it wont take long for them to thaw if you freeze them like Paul says.

I agree with Joey on this. I tried Krowtann on some salt dries capes and I had better results by NOT salt drying them first.

Do not roll the skin up in a tight ball or wad.

As with any furred animal never ball the skin up, it take longer to freeze than spread out flat.
