Re: First Fox - Help on Fur Handling Please

Fox dont usually need fleshed.....pull off the little bit of fat and meat and your done...

Take it to a taxidermist to have tanned...

Tan it yourself...

Or salt it properly and ship it to a tannery....i will 2nd moyles....

Get you some.picking/canning salt....completely salt the skin..after a day or 2 shake off the salt and re-salt it....make sure you salt it good and heavy...fox should only take a few days...make sure it is completely dry before shipping...if not it will likely rot...

Get it in a freezer or do something with it now...your risking it rotting and slipping already...even in an unheated outside garage..i had a skunk tail rot in my unheated garage...nasty!
