Took my first grizz a few days ago. Prior to that I've read up on how to skin for a rug. I feel did a great job for the 1st one.
I did not skin the head or feet as my confidence wasn't up to par for that task and I knew I had a freezer close by. He was in the freezer, wrapped inside out, within 6 hours of kill.
So question.. should I thaw, skin the head and paws, then get him sealed or bring to a taxidermist and hope he/she gets it done in time to seal it? I'd prefer the latter.. but I also don't want to bother the taxidermist during the busy season.
