Tanning Rabbit Hides????

Submitted by Melanie on 9/4/99. ( johnson2@brightok.net )

I need some instuction and a supply list for tanning rabbit hides. I would rather do them at home and not send them to a tannery. Thanks in advance! Melanie

E-Mail me your mailing address Melanie. Just click on my above E-Mail address. I'd be happy to send you instructions on handling Rabbitskins, along with our current pricelist. We get quite a few requests for tanning info on Rabbitskins from FFA and 4-H groups - consequently we wrote up some useful instructions on the subject that may help you too. They tan easily - but you have to be careful fleshing them clean. ALWAYS flesh them from their tail towards the head - NEVER the opposite or they'll tear.
