Sixteen years of experience teaching thousands of people how to tan allow Matt Richards to show you exactly what you need to know to successfully turn your deer elk, moose or buffalo skins into the leather preferred by outdoorsmen and native peoples for millennia. With Detailed photographs, illustrations and a simple style to follow, you'll learn the traditional methods of brain tanning as well as how to use a dozen eggs or soap and oil instead. This revised and updated edition includes substantial improvements to the process that make it even easier for you to produce soft and durable buckskin.

Matt virtually holds your hand step by step through the process, anticipating your questions and needs. He organizes the book so that the beginner can just follow the step by step in a really clear manner, or the more experienced tanner can reference the more in depth coverage of different options and stages in the process. 'Deerskins into Buckskins' covers tanning with brains, eggs or soap. Use it for anything from Moose to goats, but not for furs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
