    Can someone give me a few pointers on how to preserve an alligator hide, no head just the skin to put on a board?
    Thanks!

    MJROBERTS,
    Do you use anything on the outside of the hide to preseve it? Just flesh then Dp and tack down?
    Thanks

    The ones I have done I used the reptile tan that McKenzie's sells just follow the directions /flesh soak in tanning agent etc.they will come out stiff and have to be broke then oiled.
