This is my first brain tanned raccoon. I have done brain tan buckskin before, but never a fur on pelt. It turned out nice, the neck area is a little stiff but not bad. The rest of the pelt is very soft.
The method I used was this one: http://www.braintan.com/articles/furs/miller1.html. The proccess works pretty good. Just be sure to shave down the neck area the best you can.
