Sounds fine to me. **** are sold fur in anyway. I leave my **** on the board until their hide is dry. You can also keep wiping the grease off with a rag. When its done drying just take off the stretcher and hang it in a cool dry place. Remember to use belly boards and "cut the window" for fur inspection. If you don't use a belly board you'll have a hell of a time getting it off. As they dry they will form tight around the stretcher making it very difficult to get off.

Its pretty easy to make your own wood stretchers if you have just a little carpentry experience. Go to a trapping supply website and find the demensions for **** stretchers. you never know when you'll need an extra until it happens.

My coin stay on the boards 3 to 5 days tops depending on temp if they are stretched correct not over or under stretched they will keep there form when Hung of the board anymore than 5 days and you will struggle to get them off
