I believe I mentioned tiny, neodynium magnets are available at most hardware stores, hobby shops, online, and probably from Don Fran himself. You don' teed nails........a thin piece of wire with a coiled, flattened end. These  magnets are so powerful they will pick up a dollar bill, and pull iron out of fortified cereal. Larger ones are dangerous because the will get you skin between them and pinch the living crap out of it. Hey, I used these these all the time as a science teacher. If you want to see a really weird effect, drop one down a copper tube.

Deer and Gameheads / Powerwash Deer Capes
« Last post by SchepC on Yesterday at 03:51:25 PM »
I was curious when you use a power washer to flesh a deer cape is it more likely to cause slippage on the hair during the rest of the tanning process and mounting?  Also I assume once you get done power washing it you let it drip dry and then salt like normal for a couple days until no more liquid drains off.

I am new to the beetles, and what I have done when I don't have a head in with them, I will cut a amount off of whatever meat I am cooking that night for dinner and put some of it in with them. I have done roast, hamburger and even a hotdogs. You can also when you get an animal you are going to clean to put in with the beetles, keep some of the pieces in the freezer that you can take out and feed them when you are not using to clean. Good Luck
Good luck with that, if you find it please let me know. I have soaked old painted skulls with epoxy on them and the acetone ate away at the epoxy, made a friggen mess actually.
You shot what I consider a typical size Iowa Buck,7 1/2 x 19 is very common.Look in taxidermy catalogs and you will see all the options available to you.Or have your taxidermist show you photos.

Vic, I skin down to the first joint on the toes and then sever them from the paw and I can put a vice grip on each toe bone and skin them individually, down to the claw. Sometimes I hang the vice from the ceiling and let gravity help me. The fleshing part is pretty straight forward it is just that the tissue under the pads is very tough, sharp scalpel is all I use. I forgot I cut through the pads not around them. It is easier for me, the apoxy work to cover the seam, if needed is simple enough.
