Mike , e-mail me and I will gladly give you step by step instructions to prepare this skin for a rug for you to do yourself or send to a professional rugmaker.

Van Dykes has a video on coyote rugs. I have a copy of it and it shows the step by step from skining, taning, mounting the head, felt work, and finishing.

Mike: if it is wet tanned and you want to make a rug it must be oiled and finifhed first.
