So my son wants to be a taxidermist, we are taking the class together. He skins his squirrel beautifully and tail pulls from his perfect. I skin mine and do ok, I have learned fur handling through trapping is different from taxidermy. So I get to my tail and it starts to pull until it breaks from having shotgun pellets bound up in it. Instructor advises that to have a good mount we can inject glycerin and drive on with the mount. I still have to flesh and tan the pelt. I will be tanning in krowtann also. I know taxidermist have to be resourceful problem solvers, so I thought I would ask for wisdom as this will probably not be the last time I will encounter this issue. Thanks!
