how far down the beaver tail.....

Submitted by Duke on 11/26/04 at 7:00 PM. ( ) 216.196.168.133

just finished skinning my first beaver. He weighed about 65 lb.
Now I am at the tail and want to open it to clean out the inside
and get him ready to tan...my ? is how far down the tail do I cut? All the
way to the tip end and then filet the inside? I just watched a good slide show on beaver trapping but it didn't show the skinning part.
TIA,
Duke
p.s I read where the meat is delish but since a beaver is a rodent
I would feel like I was eating rat :>(

Most taxidermy suppliers carry artificial beaver tails. Good Luck! Jeff F.
