How are you supposed to put up coyote and fox, I read where your supposed to let the pelt dry and then turn fur out to finish letting it dry, is that right? also This is the first year I'm putting up my own fur and I am doing coon right now and I have some hair coming through the skin but doesn't look like i'm overfleshing it, What am I doing wrong here? if you need pics I will take some,just dont laugh to hard at me lol. Thanks for any help
Just about all my early caught coon have some hair that come through the leather side. Once the pelt is dry, all that will dissapear.
For all k-9's I wash them first. Then flesh. Then place on stretcher leather side out and let dry for the day or overnight. Then I flip them fur out and let dry for 3 days. Then when I remove the pelt from the stretcher I pin the ears forward. Post some pics if you have them! We all start learning somewhere.
the first three are of my first coon, and the ones after that are of my second coon, the second one I think turned out alot better but let me know what you think, I want to do the best I can. Thanks for the help And heres the one I like better but let me know what you think.

Your first coon has a little gristle left on the back of the neck and some fat around the front legs. Looks like you got it figured out on the second one. Nice job. One tip I can give for getting all the fat around the front leg is to stretch the front leg over the tip of your beam instead of trying to get it all off with the leg flopping around getting in the way.
