    Default Flipping stretched furs

    Well, one of the real challenges for e was always turning my pelts at the best time to avoid the misery of an all out fight with the dead critter! Fox were tough as one could easily rip the pelt if it got too brittle, coyotes were just plain tough to turn. So, how about some xpert advice or ways that work well for you fella's? Perhaps I always kept them inside out a little too long!
    When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....

    If their fleshed properly and your fur shed is above freezing with decent air circulation... I normally turn my dogs and cats within 35 hrs. If the leather is dry, your going to struggle. IMO

    It sounds like you are waiting to long to turn them you don't want them totally dry before doing so once turned you put them back on the stretcher to finish drying

    You can re wet them to make turning easier.
