    I have 2 albino squirrels to mount and would like to clean the blood off before mounting without the hair slipping. Anyone have tips?

    Freeze them or keep them frozen until you do all your research and know exactly what all the process's are you need to do. With a squirrel of that caliber you would hate yourself later by doing a wack job on them due to inexperience. id even keep them until you have practiced on squirrels you could care less about.

    Wash the skins in dawn and rinse well after skinning. Don't man handle the skins when skinning and fleshing.
