Blood on Fur

My question for everyone is how do you get the blood off of the fur after you have skinned and fleshed an animal?

Cold water works pretty well.

Re: Blood on Fur

cold water and if it's crusted, you can use cold water and peroxide. make sure you rinse it well after the peroxide, but it will foam up on the blood and works to loosen it a bit.

learned this from my wife who was a nurse at the time. they use peroxide to get blood off clothing.

Re: Blood on Fur

Not a lot of blood, I did get most of it out with a wet paper towel, but I was afraid of pressing down to hard on the fur and of getting it too wet. And this was on a fox, but will prolly have to deal with it on other animals also.

Re: Blood on Fur

Don't sweat the small stuff..
On fox, if it isn't allot it will comb out. You would comb them before you flesh and then a couple more times once they are done drying. So most of the time it comes out. Coon you comb them as well before you flesh so most of the blood will come out then. Then as far as a finish coon they dry fur in so you don't see any small blood spots.
I guess I should have asked what method you use to dispatch.
I only no how I go about it and have very minimal blood.

Re: Blood on Fur

I try to shoot the animals in the back of the head, that seems to have minimal blood on the fur. Just that this last fox i caught would not give me that shot, so i shot her between the eyes. then while skinning and pulling the fur over her head, the blood was getting onto the fur. I did get it cleaned up fairly well for the most part now that the skin is dry.

Re: Blood on Fur

Save your old socks... put one over the head when you start skinning it with keep the blood under control.
