    Good looking tyes Brett, a under used material that works very well. I like using a 1/32 oz squirrel tail with a thread neck while dock shooting and the black/silver/natural is a killer.

    Find them local at - Calyx Outdoors in Powdersville on Hwy 153 and The Sportsman One Stop in Iva on Hwy 81

    Iím pretty much the same getting all the meat from around the end of the tail. One thing Iíve never believed in is putting them in the freezer Ė I live in a cold state and bugs can survive on animals all winter long and with the wind chills we get a freezer just ainít gonna work.

    Any squirrel tails I get are washed in a mix of 20 mule team borax and Dawn foaming dish soap. I brush against the hair to get the soap deep and rinse well! I use a comb and brush the hair out to the side and put them in borax to dry.

    Clean materials are so much nicer to tie with!!! And I agree I donít want any bugs to infest my materials, and even after I stuff goes through my cleaning it still goes in a quarantine box!!

    I leave the bone in as Iíve had too many fall apart when I dyed them!!

    Same procedure I use for deer tails, except I remove the bone. And yes wash them VERY GOOD.

    any bugs that are on a animal in super cold weather survive because of the animals body heat, once the animals dies the bugs freeze to death or leave the cold body, they usually cant produce their own antifreeze or body heat.
    If you've rabbit hunted a lot and carried rabbits in your hand after shooting them as soon as they start to cool down the fleas will abandon them same with squirrels.
    Thanks tlefire thanked you for this post

    I do a lot of squirrel tail jigs. I get most of my tails from squirrels that have been hit on the road. Yeah I get lots of strange looks from folks. Oh well. I do freeze them them was very well. Other than that I just let em dry, no cuttingn or scraping involved.. make great bream jigs too.
