Splitting Tails


Splitting Tails-When skinning mink, coon, skunk, tec., is it really necessary to split their tails open? Does this increase or decrease the value of the pelt?

I never split the tails of mink, except that I open the extreme tip, so that the tail will dry. I sometimes split the tails of coons and skunks about a third of their length, form the base on the underside. Ordinarily, this is not necessary, but the tail dries more rapidly when so treated. I do not believe that it has ever made any difference whatever in the grading of my furs. I advise opening the tip of the tail, always, and especially in a warm climate. I also push a splint down through the tail and withdraw it carefully to open it up and allow a free circulation of air.
