Feet on, I charge $8 for invisible, made up critters.
NeverLookn4aFavor has done me good over the years and I would skun for free to return a favor.
I just wish you guys would get him on the right trail so he could catch something. 8 bucks can add up each day with nothing to show...cha ching!

"Predators are either active & feeding, semi-active & callable, or utterly inactive & then practically speaking, no call is needed; we're just taking our guns for a walk. We can & should get used to it, & follow their leed cuz they just ain't eager nor apt to follow our’s any time soon!

I froze 2 coyotes for a week that r skinned out but needs to be fleshed and stretched. How long will it take them to thaw out on average.

And also the one will be a wall hanger. How do you handle the front and rear legs as far as drying them properly. Thanks

I place frozen critters near our oil furnace. Overnight, they are thawed.

Front legs, flesh red meat and fat from leg and armpit. I put Borax on front legs and armpits to help dry.
Rear legs, remove veins from legs and fat around rump, tail & skirt.

Are the feet on?

Borax the feet, the one you are not going to tan. I assume you will sell this one to fur buyer. Right?

I never tanned. So I don't have all the answers. But have heard feet on, you have to remove meat from toes & pads. Am sure youtube has videos how to do that.
