Dear Friend, NAFA suggests trappers remove the ears on large beaver pelt to prevent them from molding. Also cut off the nose and whiskers as they measure the pelt from the eye holes to the base of the tail and across the width of the pelt Regards

Thanks. That's what I was reading in their publication. Are they suggesting you just cut them off flush with the pelt? I imagine most of the moisture/grease will be at the base. But if you cut out the base of the ears then there will be a hole in the pelt.

muskratsmustgo: I live in Macedon NY and am not a trapper... at least not yet. I have a few more muskrats than I would like. (Actually, I don't want any of them.) I know there are some Macedon-area guys on this site. Is anyone interested? Thanks...
