From his trapline in northern Michigan, John Chagnon of PCS Outdoors takes us to Dave Cronk’s fur shed for a skinning and fleshing demonstration. Dave is a professional fur handler and has learned to be quick and proficient putting up fur from a number of different species. He shows how to skin fox, muskrat, mink, beaver, raccoon, badger and more in this 2-hour video. Chagnon observes and provides commentary from a trapper’s perspective as Dave explains how and why he handles fur the way he does.
If you’d like a good overview video showing how to handle a wide variety of furbearers, check out “Skinning and Fur Handling“.
