    I've got a few squirrel tails saved up. Don't ask why, I don't know. Trophies, I guess. Are they good for anything? Can anything be made from them? They all still have the bones in them (probably a mistake) and I salted or Boraxed the cut ends. What do you guys do with them? I know that Mepps will pay a little for them, but hardly enough to cover postage.
     
  2. Put them on you car radio antenna.

    That's what we used to do in the 50's.

    That'll get the "Tree Huggers" excited.

  4. You can ship them to Mepps and get a few cents a piece If in good shape!

    I used to put 'em on my x-sister in laws car antenna.... she didn't want to touch them to take them off so she'd drive around with 'em until she could find someone to remove them. :D

    I save mine and tell all my buddies to save them for me and by the end of the season I have over 100. Mepps pays 19 cents a tail and 23 cents for a premium tails if you have over 100. They also pay the shipping if you have over 50 tails. They will accept deer tails too for 50 cents a piece.
