    Hello everyone, I've skinned and tanned a mink and I have an awesome form. My only problem is I son't know how to separate the legs from the form so that it'll mount up right. It's case skinned and the form is MINK-610 from Van Dyke's. Any help is appreciated!

    Notch cut them , so the cut goes into the form . Cut like a V bottom of V is in the body of form , so legs come to a point . This way it will lock back in place . After test fitting , when your ready to mount , put a little 5 min epoxy in notch slide all back in place and your done

    Sometimes, there is enough stretch to leave the legs on the form and slip the skin over them. I routinely do this on beaver and otter. Give it a try before you remove the front legs from the form. Ditto on cutting them as a wedge, so they will go back in place only one way.
