  • tanning buffalo for a teepee

    hello anyone. i have been braintanning deer and elk hides for a couple of years now and i have been asked by a friend for advice on tanning hair-off buffalo hides in order to construct a teepee. i have a couple questions- wetscrape or dryscrape?
    do i try and leave the epidermis on for strenth and waterproofing? if so- what is the best way to get good brain penetration? any other advice on this subject would be greatly appreciated!
