    Do you clean/skin/flesh the the small pads of each toe before or after tanning? I have skinned all the way to the small pads and fleshed big pads, can I go a head and tan and then clean the small pads after tanning?

    I pretty much flesh and thin them all about as much as I'm going to when I skin and flesh. I skin them out to the nail/claw, clean em up and salt. Once ready to mount use whichever clay and method you prefer in the toes and mount it up.

    Cut a X in each pad....invert with your finger and snip off fat/flesh with scissors or a knife....I do this with all animals.
