how did you prepare them? turn them inside out, scrape the fat/meat and just let them dry or did you apply some kind of tanning formula?

yeah, just scrape off the meat and fat. let it dry to the touch skin side out then turn it fur side out and let it dry the rest of the way.

If the fur is dried properly, they should never slip. The tanning process does "set" the hair follicles, but it also softens it up.

In my photo, all of my fur is just fleshed, stretched and dried.

yeah, like if you had a fox and instead of letting it partially dry,then turning it fur-side out, you just put is on the stretcher fur side out, the skin on the inside would stay damp (and cause the skin to rot quicker) and the hair might fall out in some areas. Deer skins are usaully salted though.
