I skinned a bobcat about a week ago and just took it off the stretcher and noticed that it had a really bad smell. the smell is worse than the coyotes i have just wondering if this is bad and what to do about it :? . thanks

have you put up a lot of fur..........the muzzle and ears can be a problem at times. did you pull the ear cartlidge out or use any borax?
