Salt to pickle?

    After the second salting, do I have to let the hide dry completely or can I pickle it sooner?

    I have done it both ways but usually let them dry hard, only takes an extra day or two with fan on them. Just to make sure all the fluids are out of the hide. But always rehydrate before the pickle.

    Most of the time I just salt for 24 hours,wash the cape and then go to my pickle. ;D
