Hey, I am new to tanning and was trying my luck on a couple of rabbit hides because they are real easy to get and I do not want to ruin a good coyote hide. My question is how to flesh the thing and should it take a long time? I have worked on a jackrabbit that I shot yesterday, got it skinned quick, but I am having a real hard time getting the fat and membrane off. I have worked for about 4 hours so far and am about half way done! I am doing this by attaching the skin to a boad, pulling up on the fat/membrane and cutting it away with a razor knife. I tend to cut small pinholes in it while I am doing this and realize there has got to be a better way. I have heard of using a spoon to scrape it off, does this work? Do I need to grind the spoon so that it is sharp? Any advice would help, so please be generous.
