Hey everyone,

Well I just got into trapping this year and I trapped my first raccoon. Now I have been going through videos and tips and help online on skinning and fleshing
and I thought I had it down but now not so sure. I was able to skin it with no issues, but instead of fleshing right then and there I hung the skin out to dry. so
now I still need to flesh the coon but the flesh side is dried. what would i need to do now in order to get the fleshing done?

Well Kemp, since you posted on the Texas Forum I have to believe you are trapping in Texas. Where are you located?

As answered in another thread, you are now working backwards, you should have fleshed the hide before it dried. Now you will have to hydrate it and attempt to get the fat and fleshy tissue removed and then stretch and dry it. Better luck next time.
