i did one last year it came out great i used a commercial kit/bottle.i was from a place called adirondack trapper supply,i think.it was a small bottle.you have to skin the deer then you have to use a scrapper to get all fat and meat off the hide.the you soak it in a soloution of borax and kosher salt.then you aplly the solution and let it sit overnight.then yo lay it flat and let it dry ,occasionally streching the hide.i didnt stretch it enough so it was a little stiff.give it a try its a diffrent kind of trophy
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
