I did alot of research on this. I was going to buy the kit and all. But I just couldn't the time, and really noticed you need the equipment. Like a flesher. Not an easy way to do it by hand. I found a few tannerys that will do a hide for me for $65 if I drop it off.

You got to flesh it, then pickle it, and it swells, and then flesh it again. You do this a few this a few times and then tan it.

As I posted above, I decided it was too much work and too nasty for me to do without a flesher. Send it off yourself. Here is an address I checked into. Or take to the local taxidermist and he will take care of it for ya. Probably for 100 or so dollars.

Keystone Fur Dressing - Aspers PA!
(717) 677-4553 located between Harrisburg and Gettysburg PA
$65 if you drop it off
