Ran my traps this morning and got a nice boar coon. I dispatched it as normal with a single .22 round. The coon left alot of blood on the hide. I had to get to work and could not skin or clean the coon until I got home later this afternoon.
Trying to find the best solution to clean the hair I thought I would try hydrogen peroxide. I use it for cleaning blood up on uniforms from work so I figured it should work on the coon.
I put a spray nozzle on the bottle and sprayed down any place that had blood. I worked through the dried stuff rubbing it with my fingers and sprayed it down more until the blood was dissolved. One quick rinse and no trace of blood, no pink staining, and the hair combed out nicely. Total cost about 20 cents for the whole job.
I'm sure this will also work on a small scale. Spray down blood spots and wipe clean with a damp cloth or paper towel. Anyone else use this also?
The peroxide will bleach out the hair if left in. Rinse it out as soon as the blood is disolved. Its only on for maybe up to a minute. I just sold that coon a half an hour ago. Groenwold said it was really nice.
I have tried different ideas for cleaning blood from pelts, but the best I've found is wash the blooded arte with warm soapy water, blotch it dry with paper towels then cover the area with either borax or clean saw dust, when dry brush out, works great.
Well as far as i know hdrogen peroxide is use in bleaching out hair!!IMHO cold water would be the best thing to use along with a little dawn dish soap!
if you shoot a coon,i shoot them just behind the head,small 22 short if possible,or longs and angle into body.it dont come out and no blood. little hole.just put fur into water and walk away.half hr.take out and rinse water disolves blood,just waite.
