Those would be my wife's eyes when I walk into the door after fleshing with a high pressure washer!

My wife just shakes her head when I am out there putting fur up. She always asks the same thing "can't you smell that?". I always looked puzzled and say "What?". then she just turns around and walks out. You have to remember that I used to do this in the basement in my reloading room before the garage got heat.

:shock: You take your truck to the carwash after a hard day of hunting not your furs.
I would rather have a slow hit than a fast miss...

Use car-wash for just cleaning the fur.

When you say pressure wash to flesh, do you use steam, I wonder if that would make it even faster. I've got a good Landa 3000psi pressure steam cleaner and I think this thread just made my day.

Levi,
Was that Dusty's place. That place can catch you off guard if you don't know better. :D

We were told by a fur buyer a couple of weeks to ago, if the coyotes or fox are not prime yet, cross the legs like brad mentioned, it will help make the back of the coyote look fuller than it really is. We had some coyotes that were shot early oct. and they were pretty flat yet, it wouldn't hurt to try it.
