I recently shot a nice coyote and i have him skinned out to tan him. I would like to tan him myself and i think i have the basics of it figured out but i have a few questions about some of the process. 1st, do i need to do anything with to the ears and nose before the tanning process? Is a fur stretcher required for tanning if i am not going to sell the fur? i will probably "practice" on some raccoons first so i can get comfortable with everything and i dont mess up my beautiful coyote pelt. any help is greatly appreciated!
