But I had to tell someone.... I skinned and fleshed my first animal today. A bobcat. It was quiet an experience and I loved it. No holes though I was a little slow. He is salted now and I have several projects to prepare for tanning but I'm am really excited about it all. Sorry I know this is kinda juvenile but I had to share with someone besides my mom who made a terrible face and said my crazy daughter and my husband who said that's nice honey what's for supper.
