This is my first year putting up my own furs and i am haveing a rather hard time with the strip in the middle of a coons back any addvice would be great but pleas do not say the word BEAVERKNIFE thanks
mb, watch this clip of Phil Brown.
His knife has a dull blade (inside bend) and a sharp blade (outward bend).
Dull side is used the most. But watch back, neck area, the sharp blade is used in a 'slice'n motion' until one reaches the lower back and dull blade can be use to push off.
On this video, most folks don't watch the knife work. After the first hundred Coon, there is no thought process flip'n from blade to blade, it's second nature. Watch the knife... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOGa_VF1Hoo
