    One mounted and one to go, customer pieces. Always say I'm going to start a good competition piece early, never happens, usually end up bringing commerical work. Maybe next year, LOL.
    Just informed by Eric of East Coast tannery that they will be here. If you have any salted skins that need tanning, bring them, save on shipping.

    A/c and fans are running, this humidity is killing my drying time. Room is booked, ready for the pool party and a couple days off. See everyone soon!

    Put it in your oven Rich at 200 degrees for a few hours, that will dry it for sure.

    Kelly, you could always take a customer's piece like you did last time, I'm fairly certain you did more than well with it. What's it been, 10 years or so, I think your due for a trip out of the pit.

    Paul and Rick, speed cure them in the microwave, that'll set 'em up real nice like.

    Artie, put it in your attic, I'm sure it's almost as hot as an oven and probably would be done in an hour or two.

    Ielchicken, I'll see you there, be sure to bring your swimmies and rubber ducky.

    Bollman, um, I'll tell you when I see you.

    I remember putting my mounted Caribou heads in my closed up van in the driveway to speed up the drying in this weather. Caribor seemed to take forever to dry. You can put a small fan in the van to move the air around too.
