    Hey Guys,

    Can't seem to locate anything on this subject. When skinning a beaver for a full mount, are the feet skinned the same? Since there is no fur on the feet and its essentially leather, do you use borax or something else as a preservative on the inside?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    They need to be turned all the way including the webs

    Skin them to the toenail. I've never attempted to turn the webbing. It dries similar to the webbing on a duck foot.
