New to this forum but not new to tanning... for the first time ever this year I lost several foxes to slippage but not coyotes, raccoons, skunks, otter or muskrats. I did the skinning, fleshing, stretching and drying... all were stored and treated the same way. In fact several foxes done at the same time did not slip in same tanning batch... Any ideas on what might have caused it? The slippage ranged from 80% to 5%. Thanks

snared or leg hold? I would say they laid around to long after they died before you got them taken care of. Doesn't take but an hour or two for fox to start to turn if conditions are right.

Thanks MVT... That might just be it. We had an especially warm winter and about half of my foxes were snared especially the reds w/ slipped the most.
One grey that slipped had been killed by dogs and I did it up anyways to try and salvage it and it slipped... so makes sense about the time to spoil.
I will have to rethink about snaring when it is too warm or be real careful to keep them alive.
