I am tanning my first large hide and would like to do a rug mount. I have done small game but this is my first big task. I am ordering supplies for tanning, while the bear sits in the freezer, and was hoping I might get some help as to the best method for pickling and tanning to produce a soft malluable bear hide. Precautions would always be appreciated.

to find out why the rest of us use tanneries for bears. I hope you ordered a good degreaser, plus, do you have a tumbler with at least an 8 foot drop? If not, you will get to do the "old fashioned" way of breaking the hide. Best of luck to ya, your next post should be who's the best tannery.
i do my own tanning but this isnt the one you want to be your first
and my bears are not grease at any time.
