Don't know if they have any value in the fur market. Skinning is important as you can't have any cuts in the hide if its for sale. Hang it upside down and skin it down like a glove, removing all fat. You can make a board streacher out of plywood. Just shape it like a rounded arrowhead and put the fur side twords the wood. Pelts used to worth in the 10-12 $ range here in the Ohio area but I have no idea anymore what if any value they have today.
