Half Frozen Head

Submitted by Chad on 10/25/99. ( w_chad@hotmail.com )

I got a deer head in this morning for a shoulder mount and The guy had frozen it, well anyway to make a long story short the head and the remaining part of the neck are still frozen to hard to skin, but the rest of the cape is already starting to have a little hair slip here and there. So i put the whole thing down in a bucket of cold water with some disinfectant in it and hope to slow down the hair slip until the rest of the head can be skinned. Please tell me if I am doing this the right way?

Fastest way I know

Thats the fastest way that I know.You may want to add some
salt to the solution, up to 1 to 1 1/2 lb per gallon, with
some Basacryl NBKU bacteria cide. Watch it and as soon
as you can skin do so then dry salt it till its dry. Mark

if its already slipping it is rotten

It should not be slipping already. If it is it is already to late. Area you sure its slippage? Or could it just be hair from being caped?

If its really slipping call the customer and tell him its spoiled get him there to see and explain what went wrong. JC
