Submitted by Brad Bond on 3/23/99. ( )

refering to my earlier message,(see skin preparation) I have already frozen these skins ......will they go "off" or will they still be alright? should i un freeze and dry or leave them there and dry any new ones? please help a confused hunter

Brad, the skins should be alright I would thaw them and shake off the excess salt ( I'm assuming you've already turned the lips,eyes,and ears and fleshed the capes)then resalt them for 24hrs, repeat if necessary , then dry them and ship to the tannery. I've had hunters bring me hides in this condition and they've tanned just fine, hope this helps.Gary
