Then I throw him on my homemade fleshing post that needs some revamping. Flesh him/her. Then I board skin out for 15-24 hours pending on temp in the old garage. I turn him fur out, split both ears from base to tip, let dry for 24 - 36 hours, then pin his ears forward. I then let them sit on the stretchers until I need that one or 6 days at the least.
