The hide turned out. You can dry out a hide pretty well with a leafblower.

I take my hides up to the car wash when no-one is around and hang them from the floor matt holders and give them a good washing, getting all the blood and dirt out of fur.
I take them home and let them hang over night to drip dry.
I put them on the stretcher inside out and leave them for a few hours with a fan blowing on them. I will then take the wifes old hair drier and touch up by the front legs and head area, i don't hold the drier to close, about 4-6" away. The hide will hang over night ,and in the mourning sometime i then turn it inside out. I then put it back on the stretcher and touch up some of the wet spots with the hair dryer again.
After 3-4 days i will then take out the cockaburrs and brush the hide with a hair brush, i will also use the hair dryer again to fluff up the fur. By now its looking really perty and is ready for the fur buyer...
