    Roe Skin tanning - Aberdeenshire

    Hi all,


    Can anyone tell me where I can have roe skins tanned, Seems such a waste to dispose of them as I do at the moment.

    It is better to salt the skin with plenty of salt, then leave it 24 hours to drain. After the 24 hours, shake the first lot of salt off, then re-salt, roll up the skin, and then post.
    Firstly, the postal cost will be cheaper, and secondly, you wont be filling up the bag/package with fluid that drains from the skin.
    I set the skins in a flat plastic bread basket, over my deer box, to catch the liquid.(a fair amount of liquid comes out in the first 24 hours)

    Funnily enough I was discussing tanning the other day. I reckon there must be a market for deer skin products.

    Anyone know how much they charge for bigger skins, Red for example?
