How do I preserve a fox tail? Can I just dry it? Or does the bone and cartilage have to be removed? I want to hang it on the wall of our den.

The tailand bone can be slipped out if the skin. You can clamp the meat potion of the tail in a vise or visegrips, then use two large nails against the thick base of the tail pulling to the tip, this will bunch the tail skin up and slip it off.
You can pack with salt and dry, then empty the salt a week later.
Take a syringe and squirt vinegar down the tail. hang to dry then fill with a latex caulk, once dry it will have some flexibility.
