    Hey all....well I am getting ready to begin my first real big project next week and I have a question and just trying to get a little input from anyone. The project is a lifesize coyote sneaking up on a bedded whitetail fawn. What's the best way to skin out the fawn? I've mounted lifesize Bobcat and foxes before but never a deer. Also how do you preserve or what do you do with the hoofs on the deer? keep in mind the fawn is extremely small she was found 2 days after been born to have died so she doesnt have a lot of size.. small ears nose etc... Also I struggle sometimes with the tails of some animals. whats the best way to remove the tailbone in the coyote and how to preserve down in the tail?? I know thats a lot of questions but i'm really wanting to do a good job on this and maybe enter in the upcomin PA state show so any input from anybody is greatly appreciated
