Do you think this pelt will dry OK?
Or should I scrape it a bit more?

How cold does it have to be for frost scraping Boco? I don't think we get the cold temps down here like you do up there.

We had a couple days of relatively cold weather so I put a few of the fall beaver pelts out to scrape.Its getting warmer again tomorrow,so will have to wait for another cold snap.Hope the next one lasts a bit longer,I got a couple wolves and a bear in the freezer besides the beavers and a few otters to do.The first pic is an older one,here is one of the ones I did this morning.

If your scraper is good and sharp and you get at them early in the morning and keep them out of the sun,it works at around minus 25c.It was minus 27c this morning here.
The colder the better.

Looks very nice, so you cut the nose and lips off an inch or so in front of the eyes?

C'mon man. Look at the nails to the left of the left rear leg. They're crooked. grin I think you need to pull them all and start over. Looks great!
