Hi, I am new to taxidermy and am trying to do my second mount (The first was a fox squirrel that came out pretty good) which is a mink. I am not exactly certain how you are supposed to flesh a mink. I am not new to fleshing, as I trap and have done my share of hide preparation, but I have never come across a mink before and am not certain how to flesh for taxidermy. Would you flesh a mink similar to a muskrat in terms of not taking off the red saddle? Do you remove the saddle? Or is a mink fleshed the same way for taxidermy as for the fur market? Also, does anyone know of a good tutorial for mounting an open mouth for a mink that I could find? Thanks so much for the help! Any bit is really appreciated!
