New to taxidermy.. got a good many questions. Gonna try to post em here all in one post. Hoping for some help. Will be doing whitetail shoulder mounts only for now. 1. Gonna be using Krowtann as my tanning method. When neutralizing the hide if I'm using baking soda instead of straight sodium bicarbonate do I need to double the amount of baking soda? 2. Again with a Krowtann question.. should I wash the hide before I place into the Krowtann? And if so, should I be washing with Dawn dish detergent? 3. Ive heard of people washing their hides in lysol and dawn. Is any multi purpose cleaner okay to use? Fabulouso, pine sol, etc? 4. I have a couple caped hides in my freezer to do. How do yall time the hides thawing out? I know I need to begin fleshing asap and i know its gonna take me awhile so id like them to be thawed when I'm ready. 5. I have a flesh all mini flesher (air version) but a lot of people have recommended using a pressure washer. Opinions?? 6. Any other super important tips you would give a beginner?
