Yes you can freeze them but, I like to flesh them if I can. Next never salt a hide if your placing it in the freezer. It takes longer for it freeze and you can get hair slippage there. Now a little on freezing hides. Always lay them flat till they get almost stif, then you can roll them up if you want. Don't just rool up a hide and put it in the freezer. The inner layer will take some time for that to freeze and may cause you some problems with slippage later on.

thank you
