Anyone on here have any tricks for tanning they want to share?
I'm waiting for the taxidermy guys here to chime in. :)

What kind of hide are you wanting to tan?

Is it fleshed, and salted? Have you done the pickle? What is it that you are tanning?

Make sure you cover up sensitive areas.
Or in my case put on 8 billion SPF...had skin cancer twice in less than a year

Go onto Mckenzie Taxidermy Supply and look at the tanning supplies they have. Look at the knoblock (? on spelling) "stuff" You need to salt the hide after fleshing and washing! That "sets" the fur. I know they have a kit that will do a couple coyotes, or a deer cape. Good luck. :mrgreen:

I'm going to start my tanning experience in a speedo... I will also be tanning a rabbit. I want to have a jackalope. I've been watching youtube videos, but just wondered if anyone had any tips on what product they have had good or bad experiences with.

This is one that I would strongly suggest watching some various videos on Youtube. Tanning can be screwed up, and there are some nice techniques that I have seen on there that I hadn't considered in the past.
