I am mounting a couple deer today that I received from another taxidermist that were dry tanned when I got them. I rehydrated them to prep the skin for mounting and I'm mounting them today. I stopped sewing long enough to post on here my contempt for dry tan. I hope I never have to do another one. They have wierd stretch. Almost like memory in the hide. Kinda elastic springy type. Anyway, back to sewing.
