rubbery hide???

  1. I got two capes back from wholesale tannery the other day and mounted both deer, but both deer had some serious slippage on top of head and back side of ears, both capes slipped the same places and both were real rubbery. had a hard time getting new needles thru to sew? any idea as to what went wrong in this persons tanning process? any help would be great. Probably wont use this guy again. thanks

    That is whats bound to happen if not sufficient salt is present in a float, once the skin is subjected to acid.

    Dennis, throw it in a salt bath for your answer.
