Attention hunters: Animal hides sought for service project
August 29, 2018
The Carson City Elks Lodge No. 2177 is collecting deer, antelope, elk and moose hides to make wheelchair gloves for veterans.
The annual service project transforms the often-discarded part of animals into gloves that will be distributed to wheelchair-bound veterans at no cost.
To help, remove all meat from the hide so it can then be salted with table salt, not rock salt.
After salting the hide, roll its edges four to six inches to keep it soft and pliable.
Then, arrange for pickup by calling Ray Achen at 775-350-3779 or Mike Lampshire at 775-883-4196.
