  1. #1

    Default Fur quality for tanning

    I put up 3 beavers this season, and never had them tanned before...there stretched and fleshed good but theres some cut in the hide here and there and most are pretty small. im going to send it into moyles.....if i send it in will these holes get ripped and just come out horrible....if so i guess theyll go on the wall

    Dentle floss and a needles are what I use when the knife slips (it's not knife's fault, not mine ) I've sent some critters with stitches to Moyles and they came back just fine with no more damage than what I sent them.

    Good deal Waldo...one fur is already dried up so if I tried that would it still work or just tear the hide more?

    it might tear it if it is dry. Maybe moisten it a bit and stitch. I usually do the holes right after fleshing.

    Even if you don't stitch them up they should not get bigger in the tanning process. I have sent plenty to moyle some with holes sewn others I didn't take the time to sew up adn they came back fine both ways
    meats meat don't knock it till you try it
