I got super lucky this year and drew a Kodiak Goat (DG474) AND Afognak Elk (DE723). My plan is to fly in to Terror Lake area on the 1st of Oct, hunt for up to 7 days, get picked up and flown to Afognak from Terror Lake (Roland at Seahawk Air).
My question is regarding the hides; When the hide will be sitting for an extended period of time (2 weeks), is it necessary to salt the hide, or is fleshing it good enough? I think I aughtta go visit a taxidermist and get the lowdown but I figured I should at least have a clue before I go in. All the extended hunts i've been on i've never brought the hide or cape home. Here's to a safe and memorable hunting season!
