Well, I tried my hand at tanning a coyote hide. I guess I'll leave it to the pros. I don't know what the issue was. After oiling it and trying to dry it, it still seems real oily. I washed the hide, fleshed it, degreased it, salted, rehydrated it, did a little more fleshing and then went into tanning. I did it im my basement which is about 50-54 degrees. Maybe that was too cold? It's damp in my basement as well, too much moisture in the air?
