This is my first time tanning a pelt for taxidermy, I’m using rabbits. I figure it’s cheap and will be good to practice on. I’m wondering if I can split open a case skinned pelt and just have it flat? Or will that prevent me from being able to mount the pelt? It’s like a sleeve right now and it’s really hard to flesh. And I need help skinning the feet? The skin is so tight around them that I can’t skin it. Is there a way to cut the hide to make it easier to skin them out? I just tried to flesh a case skinned rabbit pelt after it was salted and pickled for a day and ripped about 20 holes in it haha. Gonna wait until I get my bearings to try again. I wasn’t even able to fully flesh it!
