    Anyone have any leads on good books or other reference materials on making useable fur pelts?

    I posted a question in tanning and got the run around by morons with opinions and very little information.


    What Im trying to do is learn how to process say...........rabbit pelts for "primitive or pioneer" type leather to be made into jackets or something.

    I just want to see how it was done and see if I can do it myself. If the indians and davey crocket did it........why cant I?

    Thanks guys and gals.............I could really use some usefull info instead of babbling.

    Hybrid,

    You worded your topic incorrectly. Garment tanning refers now days to fur coat quality and quality leathers. You need to find out about brain tanning, bark tanning and it's methods. I'd suggest by starting at www.braintan.com. Matt Richards is the contact..he has an excellent book.
