cape question

Submitted by Elk on 10/03/2002. ( none )

I caped out a deer head lastnight, it was one from last year, it appeared to have freezer burns on the lips area, is this going to be problem when I go to mount it? Also I fleshed it out and stuck in a bag back in the freezer waiting on my form to arrive in a couple of day, should i do anything else to prep it during this time... salt it?

Back in the freezer?

your hide is already freezerburnt. Why did you put it back in the freezer? You should at least have tanned it before you put it back in the freezer.

I put it back in the freezer because I got called back out to work, and had no time to do much more with it, and figured that this is the only thing i could do with minimal damage.
