17. Must be able to properly skin an animal and prepare the skin for market.
This requirement is optional for advancement to Bossloper and mandatory for the Hiveranno degree.
You do not have to harvest this skin yourself to fulfill this requirement. You can use an animal given to you or even a fresh roadkill. Depending on the animal to be skinned, there are many different ways of preparing hides. For instance, a deer hide is handled differently from a mink. Being trappers in the Rocky Mountains, the target animal was beaver, however, most all marketable furs were harvested and prepped for market.
