This will be the first year trying to finish some fox, coyote and bobcat pelts. Watched Matt Jones DVD on putting up fur and he was using an otter board for his coyotes. I was told by someone else that that would be narrow of a board. So now confused.
Trying to minimize the amount of boards that I need to buy. And the season here is fast approaching. Can I use just coyote boards, maybe some large and small for coyotes and bobcat? And then polly need some fox boards for my red fox? Will otter boards work?
Also, (sorry for all the questions), but how do you know what size board you need per pelt?
Really need some suggestions here. Also if someone has a good source (website) to buy some boards would like some info on that was well.
