Do a google search on the internet about hide tanning you will come up with all sorts of information. I have had good luck with commercial tanning liquids on muskrat and mink hides. I haven' t had near as good of luck with the larger animals, coyotes, beaver etc. If you just want one for yourself you are best off sending it off to be professionally done. It is not real expensive and they do a garmet style tan. I use usafoxx, they are on the net.

Hey pup, after you skin the coyote (cased) put it on the correct size stretcher, with a knife remove all fat-blood clots. Keep in room-temp. air with a fan for circulation. Turn fur side out before to dry, or you will tear the hide. Ready for sale.
