Great video! Those pins look a lot easier to pull than staples, but the staples sure go in quick! I think I need to get me some push pins. It is amazing how much crud comes off the hide when using the cleaver. The hides I have used the cleaver on, seem to dry quite a bit quicker and don't seem to sweat as bad. Thanks for the video. Makes me feel better that I am doing things right.
Thanks for all the great comments fellas!! If there are any questions at all, feel free to ask, i would be more than happy to try and answer them.
What did you guys think of the soap trick at the end? It doesn't turn them prime white, but id does help just a little bit in my eyes.
I think its very slick! I have been doing roughly the same thing for a little bit. I wash the entire pelt in soapy water, before I board. I think it cleans up that fat and extra dirt that gets on the fur!
