I am just after some info, A customer brought a boar in to me this morning that had been killed 24 hours ago the weather here is really humid. I told the customer that it was probably too long dead in this weather to be sure of sucess, with the mount. It didn't smell all that bad and caped out fine I also fleshed it off fairly well, I then rolled it up and put it straight into the freezer. I just think it might be a bit risky to salt it. Can I put the cape straight into the pickle and then tan it without salting the cape? ???
