Hi all, I am new to the taxidermy forum. I was going to help a friend with a raccoon, but my experience is with snake skins. I saw some tutorials for skinning and fleshing the raccoon and then drying it on a board and another process for deer where they salted it. For the drying on a board method, is that sufficiently completed? Is there no tanning with chemicals or brains? Is it two different processes, and if so, whats different bout the end results? If you were going more for a display mount and wanted to leave the feet attached, what is the best way to go about that? Sorry for the bombardment of questions.
