. Thanks! A soda spoon is a teaspoon with a long handle. As I was searching for something that would work, that did. I'm sure if interested folks thought about the process, they'd probably come up with a better tool than the spoon.

I would also check out Rittel's STOP ROT. You apply it to the ears and it will stop them from slipping.
I would also learn how to turn ears.

Excellent information. For those not using this in house method of posting, if you use an outside photo hosting site like photobucket we can not use the post in the Archives. Thank you Mike for taking the time to repost these. Tom

Is this the new way pictures are going to be on this site?

I don't like it, I want to see them NOW.

But then again, I hate those threads that are 2' wide because of pics.

I have no idea what you're talking about. There were links to photos, then someone posted the photos. I haven't seen a 2' wide thread because of a pic. Could you point one out for me?

I don't have a page 4 on that thread. I have my default set at 75 replies to a page. The whole thing looks normal to me.

My default is 25 per page. On this thread, I'm on page 3 right now.

Does it have anything to do with the "topic display mode"? Mine is set as flat right now. Should I change to threaded?

Seldom, thank you for sharing this. It certainly makes a lot of sense to break the membrane up into narrow strips and deal with them one by one. Having a clean cut between the strips appears to eliminate the tough transition areas that are otherwise hard to deal with, at least for me. I will be looking for a suitable spoon or other implement to try your method.

Thank you again.

You can either remove each section of membrane with the dull edge of your fleshing knife or use a pair of fish skinning pliers to pull the membrane off the leather. Once you break the "hoop" formed by the membrane, coyotes flesh very easy and takes me less time than writing this.

Coondagger how old are you? Do you any copies of Fur-Fish-Game, Trapper Predator Caller, or International
Trapper Is there many coyotes in area your trapping. The coyote you did get how did you catch it. You look like you did great on coons.


Bury me with my guitar, a bottle of Jack Daniel, some MB 550s, and lots of money just in case you can take it with you!
