I read lots of posts on here about guys working on deer in their house or I even read one time about a guy who was going to try to degrease a coyote skull in the dishwasher. I thought I'd share my wife's introduction into the world of taxidermy. My first attempt to mount anything was a deer. I had already tanned the cape and was trying to do the final fleshing. Well it wasn't going to well as I was using a knife and had no idea of what I was doing. Just before I was about to have a screaming fit I remembered reading a post on here about someone using a hand grinder. Well I go get mine and I begin to try it out. This was really working well compared to the knife and by the way did I mention I was set up on my back porch. I'm fleshing away with the grinder for a little while and stopped to inspect my work with pride when I heard one of my kids yell "mom come look what daddy did". I looked up and my french glass doors were covered in tanned flesh from the grinder. Well she was really proud of me. The good thing was I got a new shop out of the deal. Anybody else have any stories along these lines?
