My cat nailed a chipmunk on sunday, We just learned how to skin mink in Agricultural science so I figured what the heck Ill give it a try. About 30 minutes later I was sure I would never eat again...But I had a very nice little chipmunk "skin" minus the tail. Dad said "Oh yea lori, all you have to do is pour salt on it, wait a few days, and then rinse it off." so I skinned salted rinsed and I got maggots. I dont like to give up on anything just because I screwed it up the first time so could some one please tell me what I have done wrong.
