    squirrel season is a month or so away when it gets here will get you a couple grey or fox squirrel tails and send them to you.. fox squirrels are getting harder to get as the greys have about taken over in the last 10 yrs.

    When season gets heres will see how many I can get, hunt them with custom Springer .22 air rifles and a custom.32 inline muzzleloader I had built.. its a blast with either, have RWS 48s, BSA LIGHTNINGS, BEEMAN R-9 and a few other springer air rifles plus one pre charged pnuematic .22.

    I used to have a bag of squirrel tails in freezer that I was going to use but never got around to it and ended up pitching them, had probably 75 tails in a gallon baggie.

    Cut the meat off best you can ..Dip that part in brine Water..Salt water..Let dry..
    Dip them in your favorite color of dye..
    Let Dry..Where screens work good.
    Then I just cut with scissors what I need..
    Have some local fly shops will buy them..
    Am Really getting Rich..Lol
    Squirrel tails are better,thicker after a frost..In my opinion the best Tails..For Tying.I like adding to Marabou gives it a little more realistic look to the Crappie..
    You can't buy marabou/Squrriel tail jigs in Store..

    Glad I keep referring back to most of these threads...I don't know why, but I plum over looked those instructions you gave out. Seems I pick up new things each time I go back thru things. Thank you very much. Eric.

    I do mine basically like I do when I mount ducks. I first debone and put in the freezer for a few days(kills any buggers that may be on them). After they thaw, I use a degreaser and soak them for about an hour. I then wash them in a liquid soap called "skin prep" really well. Rinse well and dry with a blow dryer. I then place in a container and add borax and work the skin over and make sure it gets down inside the tail. Let the hide dry and blow dry it again to get all the borax out of the hair. If I'm not going to use it immediately, back in the freezer it goes till I'm ready.

    Over kill, probably, but I don't won't any chance of bugs getting to my mounts or tying material.
