Thread: Blood on the Skin

  1. #1

    Default Blood on the Skin

    I just got a hare and a fox off the trap line. I tube skinned them both and froze the furs.
    They both have a bit of blood in the membrane on the skin side. How do I get this out?

    I have cleaned raw skins with a gentle shampoo like Johnsons baby shampoo. Rinse them in COLD water so you dont risk the hair slipping. I usually do this to clean the fur but I'm sure it will get blood off of the skin side too.

    COLD water is the key for blood. I made mistake of using hot water on my coyote and lost a lot of fur.
    Never thought of keeping a hare pelt... I'll try that next time I get one. Congrats on the fox.
