Great info as usual Wolf, I am glad you paid attention when I was teaching you those tricks. :roll: :lol: :lol:


I'm glad you made me.

BWM the otter has some singe on hind quarters and shoulder area, nothing on the belly side. Longer days and more sun light are starting to have its effect on the fur. Will be interesting to see how they grade it. When otter are in demand very few get graded singe

I finally fleshed my otter today, and it was very interesting. Totally different than anything I had done before. I just knew at any moment while doing the tail I was going to make a bobott out of him, but I did not put any holes or cut off the tail. I am going to have him tanned, so I did not cut a very big inspection window. Let me know what you think, Don't hold back, cuz thats how I learn.

I am very impressed, you did an outstanding job on your first otter. My first otter back in the early 70s looked like a chainsaw massacre. Good to see you have pride in what you do no matter how long it takes. You make me proud for what you have done. One big congrats for sure.

Thanks Wolf, those are some very kind words. You had a big part in this endeavor as well. I looked at the pix, and read your post several times. Thanks again for posting it.

Very nice. With the big ole tappered tail, those sliders are just about in a class by themselves for critter uniqueness. That dark spot down the lower leg, is that some bruising on the hide from where it was hit by the vehicle?? Considering how much warmer its down there, you did an excellent job salvaging a roadie.

The dark spot is where it was hit.
