Tell us in detail about slipping a beaver tail. I skinned and fleshed a fresh tail and put it in a bucket of water and lime solution on Oct 13. Still nothing seems to be happening. It is around 50 degrees in my shed is that too cold?

Sorry I am not "Boco", but what the "H" co you mean by "slipping a beaver tail" ???????????


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

Try freezing it in water,then thaw it out in the water,that helps sometimes.
I never used any chemicals on it.
Try scraping the grain to see if its loosening up.

Froze in water for a couple of days then thawed for a couple of days. One of the sides did slip off the other slipped about 75%, a little more came off by scrapping. I put it back in the water. Will check it daily. Anyway finally got one to slip, now will see about tanning.......
