tanning a hide?

Im thinking about getting into predator hunting and am a little blurry about what to do after the harvest. I know and understand you have to skin the animal which looks easy I know how to do that and after that flesh it then dry it on a board. my questions arise after that step. after drying is it necessary to tann the fur? or after that step are you good to hang on your wall or is there a step im missing?
thanks

If the hide is not tanned or preserved in some way,bugs will eat it!

Re: tanning a hide?

Re: tanning a hide?

I would buy a book on tanning.It will give ways to do it. Years back i found books at my local libary. The hardest part is thr preping but it is fun. Keep what you want to do froze until you figure it out.
Also look on line for instructions.

It all depends what kind of skin you want, soft ,supple shaved thin take it to a taxidermist and let them take care of it or send them to moyle tannery and get them done!
