Nah, don't pleat the tails on Raccoon, and not otter either. Only pleat the mink tails.

SnoStorm - it's not neccesary to pleat the tails but is supposed to add value to the pelt by pushing all the fur into the inspection window of the hide.

You would think the fur graders know that everyone pleats tails to try and trick them into thinking that the fur is super good, but I'm guessing they know better, and a Raccoon pleated or not would receive the same amount of money regardless. Just my opinion.

Nice beaver!
Still not enough water here for the beaver or rats to move. Going to try and set some floats where I know a few rats are tomorrow

The front leg holes look odd.I think they should be smaller like a beaver or otter leg hole.

do you just cut the front legs off at the shoulder and then pin the hole shut ?

If they were cut off just a bit longer they would make a smaller closure without too much loose skin that would overlap. But there would be no downgrade for those leg holes.

I guess it's a matter of preference on the way you do your legs if it doesn't matter which way you pin them (to a point)

Getting any more rats or beaver Snostorm?
