    George The older I get, the better I was.

    LMAO Tanglewood, you had me seriously concerned there for a second till I got to the sarcasm and irony. Good one.

    AZ~Rich " Africa" never fails to satisfy

    In many safari operations in Africa they routinely soak raw skins in a very saturated Salt brine solution also containing 2% washing soda (sodium carbonate - Na2CO3). After days of soaking they then spread them out on the dry salt and cover with same before folding and sending to their local taxi for the Dip and Pack process. So maybe the original post applies more to small animals vs Gamehead capes and larger?
     

  3. Yes; I was talking more about readily-available small game.
