    have coon saltd for 4 days,should i let him dry all the way out,or can i go on and put him in the pickle bath
  2. If you let him dry all the way out you will have to rehydrate him before placing in the pickle. Actually, fours days drying might be enough that you will have to do that first anyway. If it is pretty dry you'll have to make a brine by mixing 1 pound of salt to a gallon of water. Soak it in there for a while to get it soft again before placing it in that pickle. the pickle won't soak up into those dry parts of the skin.
