  1. Sorry if this has already been answered but am having a hard time figuring out the new site.
    1. Question: how long can a bear hide be stored after it has been fleshed and salted and dryed before goes to a tannery.

    Should be good for a long time if it is fleshed good and dryed hard
     

  3. I had a bear salted and dried for more than a year before I sent it to the tannery

    Be careful, even salted. The hair side is a welcome place for a wandering insect to lay its eggs hairside if not stored properly. It hasn't happened to me, but I know of someone it has happened to recently
