Do mink hides need to be degreased? I noticed while skinning 4 of them that they seem greasy. And BOY DO THEY STINK.. Any way I'll be using the auto tanner and EZ-100 tan. Any comments and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes you should degrease the mink and propally the reason they smell so much is they have two sent glands in the back part. You must have put a cut in them for it to smell that bad. As for the auto tanner somebody else will express their feeling on that. I don't use one.
Mink are members of the Musteladae Family, same as skunks. You need to be careful around the scent glands when you skin them and wear rubber gloves. The wife will apreciate it.
