Brain Tanning a Beaver hide

In this post I will link to a short video series I recently published on Brain tanning-

Stay Dirty-


  1. This was a very interesting series Dave, would the same principle work for such things as squirrel hides, or small game? Would there be enough brain matter to mix with the water? Or would you have to use material from a larger animal? I would think that the amount of brain matter needed would be proportional to the animal size/hide size, unless it were something like small brained Dinosaur hide or something we no longer have as a resource. Thanks for the videos!

  2. Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

    Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

    If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

    You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

    Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

    These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

    Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

    Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.

    Thanks again.
