Fox Tails.

Recommended Posts


Have a couple in the gunroom. I peeled the tail of the bone and washed it 1st. Then got a 2 litre plastic milk carton (washed it out) and half filled it with meths. Push the tail through the top and close carton with cap. Give it a good shake and leave for a week, shaking it once every day. Take tail out and wash and you will have no problems. :thumbs:

of course, again far better if you strip the tail from the bone, can be tricky first time, but easy to do, I have both fox and squirrel tails

Always found squirrel tails were a b*stard to skin! slicing gently round the base of the tail without cutting into the flesh is always the hardest bit. If you nick the flesh then when you try to pull the skin off the bone the tail just snaps off usually....

De bone the tail and fill with a powder called BOREX last a lifetime.

Hi there, any idea where i would obtain BOREX? Hardware/DIY store? chemists? Ive heard of it before but never seemed to see it anywhere?
