Uh, um, well, I don't recall actually. I know it was at least a day, and then had them on a rack to dry for a few days. It's been a few years since I did it. They were really rough when the got dry, but regular handling smooths them up. I read about soaking them in coffee in a thread in this forum so maybe a search might help the timeline. Sorry I couldn't be much help in that regard.Veeman
looks like stag heaven to me, what a great collection you have. Question for yea, just how long of a coffee soak did you give those elk grips.
