I'm ready to try my hand at taxidermy-- but I have to learn to tan properly first. I have a deer hide in the freezer that I'm going to thaw out, flesh, and then attempt to tan for the first time ever. No harm if it doesn't work, this is a practice hide. I know I'm opening a can of worms here, but can someone recommend a specific method or product I should try for my very first home tan job? I have that Rick Carter dvd (how to do a deer shoulder mount) and he used Krowwtann so I was going to try that first honestly. But having talked to several taxidermists this weekend at a local convention, not one recommended it. Of course, they all recommended their own ways and it was a lot of information so I didn't really absorb any single one fully. But now I'm back to square one picking a method. For those that tan at home, what do you personally use. And would you recommend it to a beginner? If I try one that works, I'll probably stick to it for a while so I'd like to make it a decent one. Something accessible, something that can ideally be purchased in a small quantity until I know I'm going to keep trying this, and something that's not super difficult or requires extra steps to do it properly. I don't mind doing the work, just don't start me off with something tricky please. Thank you everyone!
