When I started, deer took me about 3 hours to skin off the head and get to the salted stage. Now it takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on certain factors like if the ear is split, etc. This year I got too busy so I hired a college student to skin and flesh for $50 a head. Wow It takes. Me 10 minutes to cape one off the head and 60 bucks to get it professionally tanned.
10 minutes? Are you fleshing, turning, and salting or just freezing? The nearest tannery from my house is 6 hours away and I'm certainly not going to mail an unsalted hide that far.
