I've been trying to catch a few skunks for some of the byproducts to play with in the off season. I finally got a beauty today. Should the saddle stay on for the finished product? Its unbelievably fat under there, so it's almost a must, or it's going to end up a greasy mess.

Thank you, I went ahead and did it that way. I could not in good conscious leave it that way. So good to know for next time anyway. It's been a few years since I caught any. I got a good bit of quill and almost 2 pints of fat to render down this summer. Hope to catch a few more before seasons end.i believe late January-February is their breeding season, if not that's sure when I see a bunch dead on the road. its a great time to carry a few syringes and a glass container......but only in the wife's ride LOL

Put that glass jar of quill in the middle of a gallon paint can filled with sand, hammer the can top on really tight, take your wife out for a steak dinner and you may not have to sleep in the fur shed.   popcorn
