    Hi, I bought a coyote hide and it smells and it very waxy. It seems to have leftover meat in it. The hide is very hard and what I assume is the meat is a reddish brown color. I think the smell is coming from the waxy bit, which is on its face. It's in great condition otherwise! Is there any saving it?

  2. Can't tell anything from your picture, find out who "tanned" it and what process they used, there's a good chance it can be saved, but it helps to know what has been done to it.

    Has it been tanned? If not flesh it ,wash it ,then tan it.
