Stop Rot Success!

  1. I have been meaning to report this experience with Stop-Rot.

    A customer brought a frozen bear to me for prep work and the ears were already thawed. Since it was 100+ degrees, we were very concerned. We injected the ears with a hypodermic needle filled with Stop-Rot and got it back to the freezer. The trip took three hours before the return to the freezer.

    Last night I finished the prep work. The ears turned very easy. No freezer burn and a side effect that was unanticipated was the Stop-Rot swelled the tissues on the ear to the point that it was nearly pickled!

    It took a lot of time to inject the ears, but WOW, what a result!

    Thanks to Whitetail Designer Systems...now go get some for yourself.
  2. That is great news David. I bet Uncle Glen will be jumping for joy when he hears about it. I would not be without Stop Rot in my studio. It saved many capes for me all ready, that, in the before Stop Rot days, would not have survived. :)

    I appreciate the news flashes and all, BUT I'm on unsmite patrol and I can't concentrate on finding smites if I keep reading new posts as they come in. Too much for my feeble little mind to handle.

    David, treat a fresh green whitetail cape with STOP-ROT, roll it up flesh side in, nose first, stick it in the freezer for a few months. Culture shock is something everyone should experience.
  4. OK,

    I will file that one away for future use. I trust you on this one!

    Stop rot is a great product and I keep a bottle on my bench to spray on hides as I get them. I know Glen does not suggest to use it that way but it works for me, Whenever I get a hide in I spray here down on both sides before I put in the freezer.
  6. Dave,
    We do the same thing with ours. It is like WD-40 in that people keep finding uses for it that none of us ever thought of before.
