Tanning Hide

Recommended Posts

I've been deer hunting all my life, but I have never tanned a hide. I'm planning on tackling it this years. Does anyone have any suggestions and/or opinions on the process. I thought about a brain tan. I youtubed the basics. It seems like you scrape it, tan it, wash it, work it, and possibly smoke it. I want to leave one side with fur for a throw rug or a blanket. Some videos say avoid using salt if you want a smooth finish on the bare skin side. Any cheap suggestions on the tactics or tools that are cheap any easy. Thanks everyone...
