Re: fleshing gray fox

Most fox don't need much fleshing at all. I would be afraid of putting a hole in the skin for it is so thin to begin with. Maybe some other guys will chime in as well.

Re: fleshing gray fox

I just bought a copy of "After the Catch", he also says foox need very little if any fleshing.

I would recomend this dvd to anyone new to trapping or for guys like me who have never done their own fleshing.

All dull side knife action, and very little pressure. Everything that needs to come off comes off easy.

Re: fleshing gray fox

Just remember to dry them fur in until they start to get crinkly. Then turn them fur out for final drying.

Re: fleshing gray fox

we flesh all the fat off gray fox, from the ears to the tail,just like a coon. just don't need to use as much pressure as your would on a coon.gray fox are alot different than reds.
