    I have mice and squirrels whole frozen. I started skinning on some mice, but the entire time I was pulling fur out left and right, really sad because they were really pretty. Is there anyway to make sure the others don't slip up, and the squirrels.
  2. Try using Stop Rot, but if bacteria has already started to destroy the hair follicles it's pretty much hopeless. Salt can be useful for setting the hair also. Mice are notorious for hair slippage if they're not frozen immediately after death. Even the heat from your hands can accelerate the bacteria growth since their skin is so thin. You shouldn't have as much trouble with squirrels.
