Selling green frozen critters

Submitted by Steve A. on 04/02/2004 at 11:42. ( )

This may be the wrong place to post this, but I've gotten good advice from folks here in the past, so I thought I'd risk asking another dumb question. I'm thinking of selling some skins I trapped here in Montana for taxidermy purposes. All would be frozen green. Would these need to be shipped next day freight, or can you use a longer form of freight? I wouldn't want to risk spoilage. I suppose I could salt dry them first, but I didn't want the hassle of skinning feet, toes, turning lips, ears, etc. Freezing green skins and then shipping them sounds easy enough. Are there any legal issues involved? I'd appreciate any input on this. Thanks, Steve A.

Depends on what critters you far as legalitys etc..personally I'm not going to pay $40 to ship something thats not worth it..I could buy tanned and pay $10 to ship it..just my opinion

I meant to add that they would be skinned.

I forgot to add that I'd also skin them. I often get some 80 lb. river beaver, and of course the freight would be unreal. Thanks, Steve A.
