    After Iv'e fleshed and salted can I freeze ?
  2. If you are going to store a salted hide in the freezer make sure you wait until its dry. If you put a freshly salted hide in the freezer it will not freeze and you could have some problems. If you dont want to tan it right a way just flesh and put back in the freezer dont salt it.

    NO! You salt a hide to DRY it! Let it drain and dry.

    If you flesh then just freeze with out salting, if you salt it there is no need to put it in a freezer !!

    salt it drain resalt and let sit for a day than it will be fine in a freezer. Once the salt has had time to work putting it in a freezer won't harm it. I do it when it gets really hot out just to be safe.
