I tanned 8-15 every year for about 5 years. It's just a ton of work ! wonderful leather to work with when it's done ! Now I just buy that "German Tan" which is almost as soft , but thicker than what I tanned.
I tought this was work for the woman...LOL.
In the old days they worked for days on a single hide.I wonder if the hide of a buffalo is harder to prepare than for exemple a deer.
