Re: [Nature-Studies] Hide Tanning

I put the "hair-on" question to some friends with more tanning experience than I.  The reaction was mixed.  All agreed that the hair would tend to fall out or break, however a few have had good experiences including one who made a hair-on deer hide back quiver he's been using for ten years ( I like that idea so much its on my short list of projects).  All agreed that a hair-on deer hide won't tan as soft as buckskin.

The upshot is: hair-on might work, it will probably come out stiffer, like a brown paper bag rather than buttery soft, wet-scrape would be the way to go, dry scrape would require considerable experience not to scrape too much and damage the hair roots.

Hope that helps.

I have a hunter friend in Wayne, Pa who has a beautiful dear hide he just got and  wants to do brain tanning. Anyone experienced in brain-tanning want to do a work-shop for Nature Studies and help my friend out?  Best to call me for details,[masked]
