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.

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.

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.

never saw the video , but grays need fleshing and they are far from thin skinned. you can lean into them pretty good

Yep, I treat grays just like coons.
Actually some buyers want them dried fur in just like coons too, but I never do that.

The grey in the pic was a big male and wasn't as fatty as some tend to be but since I had both yesterday thought I would take a couple pics for you. I wouldn't worry getting everything off your red fox. There is some under the arm pits that should be removed and some fox are fattier than others which will require more work.

This is something alot of guys don't do as well. The ear area is where the most issues will occur with slippage due to not being dried properly. Making sure all the cartilage and any excess meat is gone sure helps and only takes a minute with a dull fleshing knife.
