    If salted it’s not frozen, just fyi if not turned and fleshed you shouldn’t salt . Just keep cold as possible. If it is then no need for freeze , not both . Salt don’t allow to freeze and makes it hard as hell to flesh . Not trying to mess your sale up as I’m sure it’s fine . Just giving you free advice.

    Totally agree on that - one or the other but not both - like fleshing rubber !

    Yeah, my partner insisted on the salt since we didn’t know how long we were going to be in the field. I’ve always just frozen which I’ll stick to.

    Yep that be your best bet , I bet you can go get it out of freezer and open it up . In my opinion you should and shake all the salt of and dip it up and down in a cold water bath let it drip dry for 15 mins , then roll up in a towel for 15 min to get excess water out then roll back up and really freeze it .
