Try your local deer/meat processing plants. They normally have several deer hanging around.

How to cure deer legs

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.
