Or skin it, tack it flesh side up to a board, cover in salt. After a couple days (the salt will become saturated), clean off the salt and replace with fresh, dry salt. This will cure the hide to preserve it until you are ready to tan it. There are also commercially available tanning solutions you can get that may be easy and produce more consistent results.
