I have used Krowtann once on a coyote cape and it seemed to work fine(I haven't mounted it yet so I don't know for sure how it will turn out). Now I want to tan a lifesize mink for a competition, but what would I do with the tail? I really don't want to split it because it is so small and would be hard to sew up, but will the tan get inside it? I read that a string can be put into the tail to act like a wick and keep it wet, but will this work on something so small? Also, I have it skinned to the knuckles so do I need to remove the toe bones?
