    My coyote has a small bald spot and seems be slipping. I pickled it as usual, 1.5 -2 ph using crystals for 24 hours. shaved the skin a bit and placed back into pickle for a few more hours. Placed into the tanning solution yesterday using lutan. removed it today and found it was beginning to slip.. Bagged it and in the freezer until I can figure how to save it.

    During the tanning process I ran out of acid crystals and did'nt get the ph lower than 5 -ph. Is this a critical factor?
