Had fox in pickle for 3 days, then started fleshing. Any suggestions on getting that thin membrane off. Will degreasing with Super Solvent help dissolve any of the stuff away. It doesnt seem to all want to come off, is it that important that all of it come off before I go to tan? There so thin skinned anyway...
Thanks for any input!

of the new Matt Thompson fish knives, in the large size. They work great for getting the membrane off of fox and other small mammals too.
You can get them from most of the major suppliers.
Andy, I use a wire wheel to flesh my foxes, also known as a
bird flesher. This works very well.
i tried using sand paper after the hide is tanned it helps alot and even softfens the hide somewhat be careful to use a really fine grain
