    I'm at deer camp this week and was given a grey fox and was wondering without a way to freeze it is my best option to keep it whole on ice,skin it and keep it on ice or skin it and salt it or is there a better way to save it till I can get it home and freeze/tan it.
    Thanks James

    The best way would be to skin it and completely flesh it and salt it. in my opinion.

    I might add - take the time to turn every thing and get the salt into the feet/toes, turn those ears, mouth split the lips don't forget the eyes and nose, split the tail and salt well.
