    I read all the archives on Stop Rot so thought I would give it a try. I've got a Red Fox and a WT in the freezer, correct me if I''m wrong. On both I apply to the sensitive areas, face and ears on the hair side, then apply while skinning to the flesh side all over. Is this right?
    Also how should this be applied. Rubbing it in, Brushing it on with a brush or ??

    You can do the sensitive areas while skinning, but on the inside, flesh it first. Nothing is going to spoil in the half our it will take to skin and flesh, just brush it on after it is fleshed.

  3. stop rot or no stop rot slit your fox tail all the way to the tip. salt or what ever you tan with but its been my luck . That every fox ive ever gotten on here and out on my own has slipped the tail if the tail was not spilt mark c

  6. Boarhunter - having spent alot of time with Mark at his shop - he is being modest - as to his times for skinning and turning - he is faster than his posted...

    Not sure I'll ever be that fast. I asked my teacher and another taxidermist I've worked with in the past who is getting ready to retire how long it took them to do a bobcat to the salting stage and they were both at 3:30 so I didn't feel too bad...until now. LOL.

The last bob cat 34in i did in 35 min . my wife was cooking me stuffed chicken breast with 7 cheeses / wowo good stuff . i know hat some are slower and might need the aid of stop rot or such, my doughter is almost as fast as i am now . but she is still young so we will see . mark c
