    In no way am I knocking Krowtann, and I'm not saying the guys that use it are crazy BUT it didn't work too good for me. I send all my capes out, but I've been tanning small game myself.
    This is my first attempt at Krowtann, and I followed the directions to a T.
    I live in a city and I know they put all kinds of crap in the water in the winter so I'm sure it effects my tans. I did 2 gray fox and one came out fine but this is what I got with #2. 50% Is no good IMO.
    Luckily this was my own and not a customers fox but I wont be taking any more chances.

    Like I said, I just think it's the additives in our water.
    Maybe that explains why I think the way I do :p.
    I should have just stuck with sending everything out.

    I've used Lutan f. I wanted to try Krowtann out.
    I'm still gonna just send my stuff out. It doesn't matter what I use for a tan if my water is constantly changing from the additives.
     
  5. That's all I use.
     
  6. Hey wolf, I had the samething happen to me with a small yote. I used the krowtann and was not pleased. My water is well water and the ph is different than city water, but same results you had. I now use the JRTS (tanning cream) on small mammals as well as deer. I have had no problems with and am quite pleased.

    Red, In my opinion it is NOT the water, But If you think it may be just put a carbon filter on your tap to rid hard chemicals. when you used lutan-f what acid did you use? please don't say saftee............ :)

    Its probably not the water, We have well water and I had a badger do that on the chest area. The top layer of skin just slid right off. I bought some JRTS to try.

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    I've been using KT on small critters for 5 or 6 years, never had that happen. Don't know about your water, but maybe the fox was bad to begin with. Or maybe it was over neutralized.

    I heard it is not in the catalog, you have to ask for it. I think that's because it is John Rinhardt taxidermy supply "JRTS" creme, but If they change the name to alum oil then they can post it. MSA That stands for "me, smart ass"
