    What size container do you use when using Krowtann? Is a 5gal. bucket good or should I go with 10 gal. rubbermaid type square container? This will be the first time using Krowtann.

    I use 5 gallon buckets, about 8 of them. It works fine for deer size & smaller. For bigger critters I use the rubbermaid containers.

    I have a few 5 gal buckets and I also bought some of the 13 gal white trash cans from walmart for larger capes.

    when you place the hide into the bucket place a water fiiled milk jug on top of the hide before you put the lid on, this will make sure the hide is completly submerged...

    When I am doing whitetails, that is about how many keep going in the cycle. Each day there is atleast one skin going in & one coming out.
    Oh and I do not use lids on my buckets, guess I am different. LOL

    I use the 10 gal. plastic totes. Then use a second one on top of the cape to keep it submerged. I buy the cheep ones at wally world.
