How do you do it? I had my taxi show me, well he offered to show us on a fox, nice cross. Never would've thunk it!
He skinned down the tail a bit, about 2" from the anus. Enough to cut the tail loose from the fox.
Then clamped the tail in a decent size shop table mounted vice.
Then took two screw drivers, a handle of each in each hand, the tips in both hands-over lapping.
Clamp them over the tail. Have a buddy hold the fox up, you pull like heck.
The whole tail bone will be left in the vice! Fur stays right side out. Just gotta poke your tanning solution in with a coat hanger or something.
Maybe this is how you all do it. I never seen anything like it and was going to either cut down the tail to skin out, or try and turn it inside out while case skinning.
I was impressed and glad he showed us!!! Just starting to get into the predator thing. Might go sit, do a stand I guess, on thursday night. No traps out yet.
