New to the predator hunting game, this will be my first fall giving it a shot. Should I get lucky and harvest a few fox, I'm not exactly sure what to do with them. I'd like to have a few pelts to hang on the wall. Is fleshing and drying (maybe salting) a cased pelt enough to hang it on a wall? Or would it also need to be tanned?

You'll need to have them tanned. Case skin, flesh and stretch. I have used Moyles and Sleepy Creek tanneries, probably would go with Moyles. Coon, fox, coyotes are about 20- 25 dollars. Or you could look into home tanning.

Moyles Mink and Tannery is in Idaho, Sleepy Creek in Iowa. They both have websites. A good shipping option is the USPS Flat Rate box; the game board size box will hold 1/2 dozen fox. You can pick up boxes free at most post offices.

Take a look at the last page of the sticky beginners post and look for some post by hern where he is talking about skinning.. Don't be afraid to send him a pm if you have any questions.

Local taxidermists all will take animals in the round and tan the hides. You'll pay many times over what tanneries would charge you. There is a fur buyer/ trapping supply guy out towards Harrisburg that will skin and flesh and then sends out hide for tanning. Forgot his name, others may know it. I don't know of any tanneries in the tristate area that tan for the public.
