This weekend I had a guy come in with a head to mount. I pull it out of the bag and it only had half of the neck on it. I said I can do it, but it would look stupid. He's going to get back to me. I had a bear to flesh and get ready to send to the tannery for a rug. I started skinning the head out, then I wanted to get all the fat off before splitting the ears and such. So I threw it on the beam and started fleshing. I get all around the thing and realize, there are no rear feet. The butcher cut them off. Am now waiting to hear from the guy on what to do with that. So I pull out a deer head that was partially thawed and skinned it out. Being there are hardly any teeth left in the thing, I figured it was old. Then I started fleshing the thing, I don't have a fleshing machine, on the beam. Holy [email protected]#$, everything was a battle. After 7 hours I finaly got the membrane layer off, and everything turned and thinned. All I have left is taking the cartilage out of the ears. What a B!#$%. I realy need a fleshing machine.
