End use will dictate.
Also species.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Skin with paws and turn the ears and will help sell tanned fur to ordinary people as well as garment makers.

Its a good time to learn / practice splitting lips as well,might get some taxi quality skins back from the tannery and get more for those on the taxidermy market.

Dont have to flip them back fur out for the tannery as long as it was dry fur when you stretched it.

Can just salt the skins as well.

no need to turn fur out to finish drying


Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

If it's a beaver and you're going to lace it up on a hoop, be absolutely sure your opening from chin to base of tail is exactly dead center. That way you'll have a symmetrical pelt and will look pleasing to the eye. Stray off dead center and you'll have a lopsided pelt on the hoop.
