    Got my first moose tanned, used Tru Bond on him. I am thinning out the nose and noticed it is pretty greasy. Is that going to cause a problem down the line? Is there anything I should do about it before I start putting it on the form?
  2. Mooses have extremely greasy noses. I like to eat them. Though I don't think that will help you out. ;D

    You should have thinned it before tanning then preceedes with detail thinng before your mounting process. I have done many moose and have never had this issue come up.

    Well as I said, this is my first moose and I did thin the nose but guess it wasn't thin enough. I was on the detail thinning. Guess that is how you learn, if I ever get another one then I will make sure it is even thinner before I tan. Rhasputin you at least made me smile and somedays that is more helpful then anything else. I may just give Tru Bond a call and see what they think.

    In the book "Cooking Alaskan by Alaskans" there's a recipe for jellied moose nose. :p No thank you...... I packed the nose of mine out for a person that requested it.

    Throw in some pickled pigs feet and headcheese and you got yourself something.

    My mother-in-law used to serve pig scrapple, what ever that was, I didn't mind it when it was fried.
  9. Don't ask what's in scrapple man. You just don't want to know. ;D

    You have to thin everything anyway, way not prep the skin first, then tan it, that way there are no thick raw spots that the tan might leave. Surface tan can happen on any skin that is not thin at tanning time.
