Try your local deer/meat processing plants. They normally have several deer hanging around.
I have the deer legs that I want to use for gun racks on my wall. What I need to know is the steps or process involved to cure/presserve them myself. I need to know what chemicals I need. I know how to tan the hides, but I don't know how to preserve or cure the legs to make the gun rack. Please, any info will be greatly appreciated.
Van Dyke's Taxidermy Supply sells the complete kit for doing this kind of project and the are only about $15.00. They come with forms, chemicals and instructions. Good luck
