Fur Shed/Skinning Station Set Up

I was looking to organize and improve my set up to be more efficient when skinning furs. How do your have your fur shed/skinning station step up? What do you have holding the carcus up when skinning? What set up do you have for fleshing? What do you think are a must have? Any pics?

Re: Fur Shed/Skinning Station Set Up

depends on what u are skinning? for fox and coon coyote muskrat I hang a small rope with a loop and hang them buy the back legs 1 at a time. For beaver i lay them down and do them on a table. a fleshing beam and a fleshing tool to flesh. I use a draw knife that does a good job but u better know how to use it.Use smalls coons for pratice cause you will mess up the first few for sure. we hav j hooks spaced out for drying the furs above on a beam with a good supply of stretchers. and a nice pot belly stove is a must have! lol hope it helps i will try to get pics for u.

Re: Fur Shed/Skinning Station Set Up

Plenty of lights. Good lighting is a help.
Fans to dry wet fur.
Beam and skin'n station near door so you don't have to carry carcasses & fat too far. Wheelbarrow to haul carasses out the shed.
I have electric hoist. It's great to lift Deer off floor to skun. I keep hoist at one height to skun most critters and use it to pull Coyote hides off carass.
Fleshing beam I have mounted to wall with a hinge and hinged leg. I keep it fasten flat to wall, outa the way, during off season.
Cardboard on the floor, duct taped seams. Old capet will do, also.
I use an empty cardboard beer case lined with newspaper under skun'n spot to catch blood.
I have a small table with wheels that I have all my skun'n things on...knives, sharpers, pins, comb, tailspliter, towels, rag and wet wipes. This table is within reach of where I skun. In the off season, I push table against a wall, outa the way.
