That over the knee deal is clean skinning.....after rough skinning once. If you can do one, you can do the other.

I am going to demonstrate one of the oldest methods of pelt preparation. Back when folks couldn't carry their fleshing beam and draw knife around with them in the bush . And I'll do it with a knife that has been in production for around 200 years. As I haven't Googled this, you can take it with a grain of salt...for now .

Fantastic--clean skinning a beaver with a grain of salt.
You are the man Les.
I will bring the salt shaker.

Clean skinning beaver and fleshing a rough skinned beaver over your thigh have one thing in common,they both require a good sharp knife and ability of the skinner to sharpen said knife.

I think I can flesh one over my thigh....lucky for me, that's not the demo I'm doing, lol. I have tried it though, for those tough grissle spot around the tail area of the beaver, and I did for just craps and giggles .

Do you mean ARCTIC CRAP, with the JUNK FRames that will leave you out in the middle of nowhere broken in too! I wonder if they ever took care of the 100,s of bad frames. my second frame lasted a total of 3 weeks before starting to crack in all the same places 100's of others did. I have 15,000 miles on my Grizzly 700 with no problems.
sounds like a good lineup, Rally are getting shiney on top or what?

4:00 pm Mink and Coon Trapping Gerald Schmitt
I don't think Gerald needs much introduction from me. He's the real deal folks and has forgot more about commercially trapping mink and coon than most of us will ever know.

Welp, it's only a few day Les and you'll be on the big stage.

Hopefully, my Wisconsin buddies can make the trip.

Unfortunately, I will not be leaving for CO until Tuesday so I will not be passing through. I really wanted to make it over for this event. So much packed into one day!
