    same way you'd skin any small animal i'd imagine.
    For a given claim: When the kernel of truth within is disconcerting enough, do you really think rolling it all up in a particularly thick veneer of steamy BS is going to help your case?

    WE - I've never skinned a mink, but here's a discussion on it on a beginners taxidermy forum. http://www.taxidermy.net/forums/Begi...3C4CC5E4A.html

    Be careful! Mink have a musk gland. That stuff stays with ya longer than skunk does. I really wish I had asked someone before I skinned out my first one.
    Well why not?
