    Hey all!! Prob. a stupid ? but just wondering. I was gifted a wood duck, It's skinned except for head.The guy put it in a lg. ziplock and then filled with water and froze. Will soaking in the water before freezing and while thawing have any ill effects on the skin or feathers??? THANKS,AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!

    No problem. Do it all the time. Freezing in water helps to prevent freezer burn by keeping air from coming in contact with the skin. It's a great way to store when you can't finish everything in the same day.

    x2. I always freeze in water after skinning, fleshing, and washing. I just dont recommend thawing and re-freezing several times. There is a tutorial for this method in the tutorial section under wingtips ;)
