Fleshing is the task of removing all flesh from the skin side of the hide. It can be a tedious process if you want to go full-blown pioneer man. There’s also another option, though. A pressure washer—at least 1800 PSI—is a fast and effective method for fleshing a hide.
Tack the hide over a large barrel or hang it on an exterior wall or sheet of plywood. First, test the pressure on a corner of the hide, making sure it won’t tear apart. Apply a steady stream of water across the hide, being careful not to hold the nozzle in one spot. The hide should be clean and white when you are finished. Use a sharp knife to remove any excess flesh.
