Hi my name is chase, i am 13 year old boy, i live in oklahoma. I am an active member in my local boy scout troop. i recently attended a campout know as trappers. the campout consisted of over 100 troops from all over the U.S. The main goal of the campout is to trade objects. commonly traded items include animal pelts,skulls, knives,and any thing else boys my age find cool. i traded for a bever pelt, i noticed that the pelt was already dryed, but still had meat on it. i do not know how to flesh the pelt. the leather side of the pelt is like cardboard, and when you shake the hide it sounds like a big sheet of paper.i don't know what to do with the pelt. I don't know how to flesh a dry pelt. i have the materials to flesh the animal, but i dont have a fleshing beam. so i am in the process of making a beam it is 10 inches wide, and 1 inch thick. but i dont know how to make a stand for the beam. any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. have a good day, god bless.
