I have quite a few skins, all from roadkill. Foxes, bobcats, squirrels, skunks, raccoons, weasels. I like the idea of salvaging what turn out to be beautiful furs from what would otherwise rot on the side of the road. After skinning, I stretch the pelt out on a piece of plywood, fur side down, covering it with granular salt. After about a week, I remove the salt, roll it up, put it in a mailing tube, and send it to Bucks County Fur in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. They do an excellent job of tanning and in about six weeks, I get the tanned hide back via UPS.
