    Are there any tricks to mounting tanned skins?
    Do they dry like other non-tanned skins?
    Can anyone answer this?
    Thank you.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Let me try this. Did you ever get leather gloves wet and then set them out to dry? Do they fit when you put them back on?

    Tanned hides don't have the stretch a totally green hide would but it will constrict as it dries.
