    Can anyone recommend a good dvd on how to tan a deer hide for taxidermy at home?
    Research Mannikins has one called "Tanning w/ Mark Daniels & Mark MClain".
    The dvd covers several methods of tanning from (DP to liquid tan) but is a little dated. I'm not opposed to buying this one but want to see if there are better dvd options or if anyone has watched this dvd.

    I have that DVD and used the Liqua-tan process for years with great success. All of the steps used are proper steps for tanning from salting to pickling to shaving to neutralizing and tanning with Liqua-tan or Paratan and oiling. Nothing dated about it, because tanning has been around since man started using leather and it hasn't changed much.

    They don't do any DP in this video, however, they do explain what it is and what it does.
