    I'm getting ready to mount a badger rug. I have the hide already tanned and in the freezer. Should I dry it out and break it first and then rehydrate the head and mount or should I mount it then let the rest dry?

    well, I've never done a rug, but we were shown at school...
    we were told to get a dry tan, stretch the hide, rehydrate the head only to mount it.
