Their are two sites that I found very usefull. Taxidermy.net have some experience taxidermist on their forum that have alot of information, and are straight shooters. Great bunch of people. I use the McKenzie Taxidermy Supply pickle method and has worked very well. I also found the quicker the hide is off the carcass, the less chance for slip.

I started tanning hides with nothing but my knowledge. It is pretty simple to some degree. I used a curatan by vandykes. It comes with directions on how to do it and all you really need is time and a smaller garbage can that is clean to soak it in.

There's a book "Tan Your Hide" that I've heard good things about.
