    We have used the borax to aid in drying the meat/fat that sticks to the underside of the skin. It basically just pulls moisture out and allows for easier scraping. It may dry the skin some, but isn't the true 'tanning'. I have never done a full tanning process, just skinning, short term preserving thing. They do sell kits though for tanning at many outdoor stores and possibly your local feed mill or hunting supplier.

    What's the best way to make a homemade incubator? I have aquariums, lights, lamps, heat rock, etc. Are there any must DON'Ts?!?

    'Close' is defined by how far you want to travel to get them once they come in. 90-ish miles one way is probably not worth it, but that's your call.

    Yikes! We have a coal stove, and only spend about $300 per heating season.

    We tried it a couple times. It was interesting, but we only ended up with around a qt of syrup. It was fun, though.
