    I’m planning on freezing the fawn hide I just finished fleshing after I salt it. Wondering if I should stretch it now or wait until I rehydrate it after thawing?

    Not sure why you would stretch it , especially before it’s completely tanned . So are you mounting it ? Flat tanning? Hanging it ?

    Not sure why you would salt it and then freeze it. I would do one or the other.
