Last week I was pickling some coon skins. Later that night I was rummaging around in the freezer looking for some ground meat and came across a coon that I forgot about that still needed to be fleshed. I hung it up to thaw and fleshed it the next afternoon.

After I fleshed it I threw it right into the pickle with out drying/stretching. It feels radically different then all the other pelts and is also much lighter in color. I took them all out of the pickle Last Thursday and the forgot one is still very damp. Will it turn out the same as the other or by not drying it first really going to make that much of a difference?


I should also include a day after removing from the pickle I brained them.
