Hi all, This forum seems to have the most useful info on the net. I have few questions, I hope someone can help me. I have 3 coyote pelts I'd like to tan to be used in garments - mitts, hats etc. Sorry this is not about taxidermy. I skinned them the same day they were shot in January and February. Washed in mild shampoo and fleshed on a beam. Someone told me it was a mistake to wash the hide. Was it? After that I dried them. No salt. I am confused about the salting. Fur auctions usually ask not to salt pelts. On this forum most do. Is it the difference between tanning fur for garmetns and for taxidermy? Now will the following work? I plan to rehydrate the pelts in water with a bit of bleach. Pickle in salt and transpacide (BM Sports product here in Canada) Wash in water with a bit of Dawn (degrease) Netralize in soda Tan with Lutan FN and salt Oil (some oil from the same BM sports) Break Thanks for the help.
