Tanning Hides

Anyone ever tan their own hides? I was wondering how difficult this would be and what others have used to tan hides. I will take any tips or pointers anyone can provide also.

Re: Tanning Hides

Flesh and salt for 24 hrs, make pickle with acid ( I use 1 oz acid and 1lb salt per gallon of water) agitate couple times a day for no less then 4 days. 4 rth day pull out and shave then apply tanning oil. As it drys stretch it or tumble it if you have tumbler. I heard of many people using krow tan these days with a lot of success. Krowtan comes with everything in one mixture.
