If you're in the field take your knife and cut around the tail near the rump, cut down just deep enough...don't go into the bone, just through the hide. If you cut too deep you can pull the whole tail off the body...bone and all. I then take my shooting sticks, stand on one or both of the rear legs and pull. The tail slips off the bone.I usually slit the tail to the end and salt it down...they last a long time this way. You can buy some tanning solution from a taxidermy shop along with a tail stripper and a slitter (looks like a letter opener). The tanning solution is pretty cheap and is made for doing a few coyote hide...I'd imagine you could do a bunch of tails with some. Or you could just wash em and salt em.
How exactly do ya "strip the tail" so the bone remains on the dog? Never done this, can ya tell?
