    Looking to start sending out our hides for tanning. Need reputable tannery? Also, what are expected prices for deer hides? and shipping?? Have been doing our own tanning, but we are getting behind, and had a handful of hides slip and not sure why? Does anyone know how much b. soda to use during neutralizing and how long to neutralize? wondering if that could be cause of some slippage??

  3. Slippage on well prepared hides? Float issues in the pickle? I would only be able to guess at the slip problem, but most likely there was an air bubble trapped in the hide during the first 48 hours of pickling.

    Neutralizing varies with how you are tanning the hides, paste tan, paint-on oil tan, submersible tan.

    Contact manufacturer for their recommendation on neutralizing. I use Krowtann and had a question on this - called number on bottle. Guy answered right away and walked me thru process - no problems.
