Just got a new fleshing beam and knife. This will be my first year fleshing coyotes. What should I use for a surface finish on the beam?

Nothing, just use it. But if it's wood and you would like a little extra protection from nicks and cuts you could fiberglass it.


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

If its wood i would put a very light coat of boiled linseed oil on it to keep bacteria from getting into the grain.


Ya can't miss fur if yur traps are out somewhere.
Or so I've been told.

I rubbed my fleshing beam down with turtle wax it seals the wood and the water, blood and fat just roll off anything that stays wipe off with a rag. At the end of the season litely sand it down and apply more turtle wax to help preserve it.
