Tanning some pelts


Recommended Posts

Looks like its been a little slow with the posts here after deer season ended.
For something a little different, here are a couple pelts i tanned up at home that some may find interesting.

Both turned out not bad - not excellent mind you - but not bad.

one 2xl muskrat and a female mink.

Since they aren’t worth much at auction this year i thought it would be good to change things up a bit.

Rather than simply fleshing and drying them and sending them to auction, I prepared them for long term use as wall hangers or gloves. The Raw hide is pickled then tanned in solution removing all the fat and saddle flesh. They will now last indefinitely.
