I just found out this morning that a hide I had skinned for life-size and brought to my taxidermist last February 7th (2013) is still in the freezer. Its as I left it with him. How long is this hide good for that way? I really find this unacceptable. And will probably take it from him. I would really like it mounted, but don't want to put someone else's screw-up on another taxidermist.
