    20180112_225506.jpg 20180212_111438.jpg 20180114_111725.jpg this is my second tanning attempt, first was a raccoon, now its the fox's turn. Searched youtube and did it with a board, fleshing, salt,drrying, washing, tanning I used Deer Hunters & Trappers formula, it Wass more work than I expected, got a little careless poked some holes, sliced the tail, and had some fur slippage. overall the pelt came out nice and soft very flexible. next one I want to do a coyote got kill one first. Feel free to leave your comments and advise.

    Tandy Leather sells some stuff called "Tannit". I have used it on squirrel skins. I believe it says on the bottle it is enough to tan a deer hide. After salting and drying my deer skin I sent it out to be tanned.
