mgm260: Guys, I am 48 years old and just trying to get back into trapping. I use to
trap a little bit back in the 70's with my Dad, but have pretty much forgot
everything, especially how to skin and flesh. That was a great video, I
hope you put up a few more. Maybe get a few of you guys settin up a few
traps and checking you line. Take care and thanks, Mike.

anamericanman11: Using a knife that much only leads to accidental rips in your hide. Once
you have your legs and tail started a better and faster way would be to
pull the hide off like a sock all the way to the head. I also noticed they
left the nose cartledge in the hide. Better to skin this out too. Other
than that, Good job
Michigantrapper: @creamtt Their fur is only good in the fall/winter months and it costs more
to trap than you make in furs. Its more of just a fun hobby
historytruthseeker: you get $10.50 for a big black hide from the fur buyer? That means there is
money and trappers should stretch their own rat's because it's not very
hard just stretch them on a board.
Michael Richardson: you should make a video of checking your traps and were do you buy the
five0pd310: Those are a fat little creature. Looks like they have quite a bit of meat.
Ever tried eating them?
Mary ann Foster: Yal are adorable! You made this look really easy! Clothes pins though..not
paper clips..but Im old..maybe you call paperclips that now..no
offense..thought it was cute..When I was about 15 I got 5.00 each (1974)
and did a really crapty job lol..Gonna look on ebay for a stretcher..back
in the day I nailed them to a tree
Michigantrapper: @jtschid0910 "Cased" means that the the skin is on the outside and fur on
the inside. A good muskrat habitat, you will see feedbeds, huts, runs, dens
and toliets. It all depends on the area you are trapping. If you are
trapping a marsh, huts, feebeds and toliets. If you are trapping a pond,
runs and bank dens. For coon, pretty much any water source will have coon
running it. Look in the fresh mud for tracks and also for runs in the grass
going to the water. Thanks for watching!
sksushi3: try bending the scraper. thatll help take off the flesh more accurately.
and takes less effort
maxsand: reek...to stink to high heaven...reeks
I Am Sh3rlocked: The eyes are the only part of the skinning process that freaks me out. They
just keep staring.
dreadfulcreation: it looked like a meat ironing board lol, good video though
ZeldaZelda123123: So freaked up. What is wrong with the world
Joe Witkowski: @Dreaminstar64 when the world ends you will be begging him for muskrat
gloves and hats to keep you warm
SuperHarryace: Good job guys!!
Tay Tayy: Your video is very informational I'm raising meat rabbits n want to keep
the fur... where do u get the stretching wire? I see u don't use salt
76chevy: just pull the skin off...why use the knife??
Tony Fletch: Yo just pull the pelt don't cut it, you can just scrape the meet off
Butcher215: can you guys show your dried rat furs. This is my first year and idk if I'm
doin it right.
henryfishinandhuntin: how much do you get per hide ?
BoynamedSally: so can i just flesh it with a knife or can i make a makeshift flesher? do i
have to buy one???
Forewarned76: When you pulled it right side out, I thought you were going to do the
worlds most gruesome puppet show
historytruthseeker: I've skinned about 75 a day everyday for 3 months.
hndalvr11: Awesome video! what do you do with them after you've hung them on the
stretcher? Or do you just let them dry and they're done?
Ed Caraccioli: Check out ROAD RUNNER WILDLIFE ATTRACTORS - GOOGLE US - We have a huge
collection of YOU TUBE VIDEOS on TRAPPER EDUCATION - and other subjects. ed
Michigantrapper: @MrProhunter17 We don't do anything to the fur and about 2 days with a fan
blowing on it.
Michigantrapper: @countryboyGH Thanks for watchin the vid man. Keep trappin.
thegreattotemaster: I presume the same would apply to mink?
MrCoolbreez01: do you sell the muskrats on the stetcher or do you take them off and sell
Michigantrapper: @mzTayTay17 For rabbits, we usually just tack their fur up on a board and
salt their skin. We use wire for muskrats because thats the way the buyers
Michigantrapper: @flyndublin No tanning needed when selling dried
