Just starting to trap and sell hides and need some info. Don't start jumping around about the terminology, like I said, just starting out. I've seen the older stretchers made of wood and the newer ones made from the wire and clips, which is better? Also which is better and brings the most money, skinning from the hind to nose with it inside out or splitting the belly, making it spread eagle? Need to know how to properly prepare and tan the hide too. Mostly will be doing coons and foxes, with a few coyotes in there somewhere. If someone knows a place to get a fair price in mid/east-TN, that would help too. Thanks.
