If a person was to get an otter, after the kill tag is attached through the jaw and removed from the trap, do you take it to get sealed before you skin, then take the skull back later? Or can u skin then take the pelt and skull in when your done. I just want to do it right and the book is vague on the subject. Thanks

I generally skin, flesh, and dry. When it is dry I take it off the board and take finished pelt and skull to DNR office for sealing.

Ok thank you!! So it's ok to take the tag off to skin the just replace it on the skull after? Also can the skull be left with the meat and all the still on it or does it have to be cleaned?

I always take in the pelt skinned and fleshed with the skull. The skull does not have to be cleaned or anything at all. They probably would wonder why you messed with it if you did. Personally the bloodier the better. I like watching the desk jockys cringe a little. ;)
