Preparation & Handling

1. Open skins flat and salt the flesh side thoroughly using a fine grade salt (a skin the size of a deer hide will require 5 to 10 lbs of salt while a cow may require 20 to 30 lbs of salt).  Leave the skin sit salted for 4-6 hours, until flesh & fat are slightly firm.  DO NOT ALLOW SALTED SKIN TO FREEZE ONCE SALTING BEGINS!

2. Scrape off all flesh, fat, bones, and split the tail if present.

3. Salt again covering all edges, wrinkles, etc.

4. Allow skin to dehydrate on an incline so that fluids drain away from the skin for 24 to 48 hours.  DO NOT ALLOW FLUIDS TO PUDDLE

5. Shake or sweep off loose salt and re-salt again with clean salt (same quantity as in step 1).  Salt should remain on skin for 4 to 5 days.  If skin does not dry use a fan to circulate the air. This will aid the drying process.

6. When the skin gets crusty (but not hard) shake off all loose salt.  If fur still has damp areas use paper towels to dry as best as possible.

7. To package for shipping, fold skin hair side to hair side as necessary to fit in an adequately sized cardboard box.  DO NOT ROLL THE SKIN!  The cardboard box should be lined with newspaper only. NO PLASTIC, SHREDDED PAPER, FOAM, OR PEANUTS SHOULD BE USED!

8.  Count your skins accurately and enclose a packing list filled out with box contents, name, address, and phone number.  Our Shipping Form is provided for your convenience.
