My next (and first ) project will most likely be a coyote shoulder mount and maybe a Jack rabbit, should this be wet or dry tanned?Thanks

You can have wet or dry doesnt matter.. Wet tan comes in wet....Needs frozen..Dry tan comes in dry... You have to soak it up before mounting it, but can be stored short while on a shelf instead of in freezer prior to soaking up. Depends on what you prefer..Myself I prefer wet. BTW good luck if you do a jack... The skin is thin and the ears are a PITA.. :smiley-outta-here: Go slow

I can never get the stuff out of the ears. Heck I have trouble pulling the tail out.. Good luck and we are going to need pictures.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
