Cut around the base skin down far as you can then cut the tail bone. Stick a big straw into the tail and fill with salt or borax and leave it for a week then empty and put in new salt for one more week and so e

Order yourself a tanning kit from van Dykes supply online, you'll get enough to tan a couple of coons, borax or salt does not have any tanning ability at all.
Good luck

I have coon tails hung in my gun room from 20 years ago by doing exactly what sapper recommended.

+1 for borax and uniodized salt mixture. Have several squirrels and tails done that way

Iíve got a few fox tails that Iíve had for 20 years in the house. All I did was put some salt on the exposed bone after cutting tail off, then hanging out side for a while.
