Great posting...

I've got a big boar coon hide in the freezer and a Lutan F kit that I bought a couple of yrs ago, just never used it... Thanks for getting the interest stirred back up!

Can't wait to see the results!

When you take the hide out of the Lutan F solution do you have to worry about the acidity still when thinning the hide further?

Can you send Denton tannery dried hides ( as opposed to frozen..)
Also how do you dry hides to preserve for tanning later... I don't have a freezer.

Any chance we get final pics??
