Hey all, A couple of questions about skinning/tanning a mink for lifesize mount. What would be your preferred approach? Case skinned or a short dorsal incision. Or would that be dependant on the pose. I'm assuming that the tail would be stripped off like a squirrel, not split. Can't imagine trying to sew that. When tanning a small mammal like this, do you salt first or just throw right into the pickle? I just wondered about getting salt into(and back out of the tail skin if it's not split like larger mammals such as fox or racoon. Is this any concern?
