Step 1: Items Required
1 x Sharp Knife
1 x Lb of Salt
2 x Rags
1 x Cutting Board
1 x Non Queasy Stomach
Step 2: Preperation
Step 3: Cut
Draw the knife back towards the anus.
You might have to turn the knife over to help break the skin after you get a cut started.
Step 4: Peel
When you get to the legs you have to slit the skin from the center of the body out towards the feet. It helps if you make a circular cut around the ankle/wrist.
Step 5: More Cutting
Step 6: More Peeling
When you get to the tail all you have to do is tug along the length of it and the tailbone should slid free.
Step 7: Preservation
When i say salt it, I mean salt the living heck out of it. I normally use one pound of salt per pelt. You should have a good quarter inch of salt on it to soak up the water in the fat and tissues left.
Make sure you stick some salt in the tail. If you dont your tail will rot off.
After the salt sits for a day it will have a crust. You will need to remove the salt and GENTLY scrape at any remaining fat. You have to repeat this process till the pelt is dried out and is stiff like a board. I would check it in the morning when you wakt up and then again at night before you pass out.
Step 8: Enjoy
This may not be the fastest way to do this, but as I have never seen a site with directions on how to do this I figured what the heck as it is how I go about it and I know it works.
As it is my first tutorial go ahead and flame it as you see fit.
