    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago I skinned, fleshed, and salted (x2) four skunks and hung them up to dry. They are still soft and pliable. Will they harden like a deer cape after salting?

    Thanks!
     
  2. They are very greasy animals, so they seldom dry hard like a deer.

    They don't seem to dry as hard.
