    Question Fleshing Slow = Drying Too Fast??

    Having some trouble fleshing hides on furbearers... I flesh too slowly in the attempt to not cut the daylights out of the hide. This is resulting in the hide drying faster than I can get it fleshed and on the stretcher. Any helpful hints (besides the obvious - flesh faster and learn to sew )?

    I am remote, so no running water to be able to continuously rinse it in cold water as I go.

    spray bottle full of water. get it moist enough to come off but dont saturate it. a Fine mist is what I use. Some disagree but everyone has their methods and has always worked well for me.
