So is it possible with Borax only? If you were to properly flesh and get hide as clean as possible. What's the difference between commercial dry preserves vs 20 Mule Team Borax. I know that in dry preservatives there is Borax, Alum, Napatha Flakes, etc. Is it possible for Borax to fully penetrate a raw deer hide? So has anyone on here used say Stop Rot with Borax only, then mounted the hide? If so how bad was the shrinkage, did it turn out great or was it a disaster?
