They came in last night. They were almost hot to the touch and wrapped in plastic bags. All the juices and venom leaked into the plastic bags along with the melted frost and they slipped from about 6 inches behind the head to the nasal heat pits. He threw in an extra that had a bad eye for free, and it is the only one that may be OK. Go figure. I froze them immedietaly and am thawing today. Sometimes you can stop the slipping and salvage them if you skin the head area while they are still partially frozen so you get no heat transfer from your fingers. If they skin out Ok, I am gonn acll him and let him know and then take care of things. If they are OK, I am gonna pay him for them. Asong as I can use em, it is the only right thing to do no matter what happened delivery wise
