Years ago I used to stake out the hide(fur side down) and salt it. You then scrap as the salt pulls out the excess moisture and repeat as necessary. May need to work in something to keep the skin from excessively drying out and cracking.
If there is a blackpowder rendevuos near you soon, go there and get all sorts of better info than mine.
Dixie Gunworks catalog has quite a few books on buckskinning and tanning.
