I removed the fat and flesh from the hide but would like to know if I need to remove the red membrane from the shoulder area?

NO! Do not remove the red membrane from mink or muskrats, it will actually devalue the pelt.

Endeavor to persevere.

Why is it that the red mebrane needs to be left on? Just a question I have for awhile.
