We have a frozen bear hide in our freezer. I am
wondereing if there is a way to preserve the hide at home instead of using
a taxidermist? The Native Americans did. Was wondering what if any
chemicals (natural) are using in preservation of hides. And if I would be
able to purchase these at a local market?
I have known people who have tried this, almost always with poor success on
the first couple of tries, it is difficult and time consuming to do it
right. I do not know what specifically you need, I think there may be a
couple processes, check the library.
