DEER HIDE—TO TAN—I have a deer hide that I wanted to tan so I stretched it up and dried it, then I covered it with salt and alum and left it a week. It did not turn white as I expected. What was wrong?
You could never tan a deerskin or anything else in that way. Our “Farmers’ Tanning Guide” gives good methods of tanning and so does the book “Camp and Trail Methods.”
