You've done some stranger things with bear skins without salt, so you just may get lucky, but foxes are tough critters under the best of circumstances. From the archives, you've played a little fast and loose with the accepted methods most of us use. Is there a reason for that?
YOU TALKING ABOUT?
And no one could duplicate the spelling of those three different names. Aren't you the guy who suggested using bags of ice in bears and burying them instead of salting them when out in the bush?
Still, the point about the foxes is the same. They ARE tricky and you should stick to time proven procedures. At this point, there's nothing you can do except hope for the best. A skipped step is a lost step.
looks like you have a lot of names to!
FORGOT ABOUT THAT BEAR, WORKED FOR US. WAS A KID WHEN WE DID THAT DIDNT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE TRADE WAS JUST AN IDEA, NOT TO MANY KNOW HOW TO SKIN AND SALT A HIDE! LIKE I SAID WE NEVER LOST A HIDE OR ANY MEAT! AND I READ IN THE SEARCH THAT RED FOX'S LIKE TO SLIP AND SAID TO THAW IN PICKEL SO I WAS WONDERING ABOUT THE SALTING STEP!
I just don't have DSL. You guys are "special". LOL
