I managed to take a brown bear over the weekend. I made it as far this weekend as getting it home, getting the skull out, then made it by F&G today for sealing. I was going to take it to my normal taxidermist who's done a few mounts for me over the years but when I gave him a call he told me he had retired from doing bear rugs. So now I'm on the search for an alternate taxidermist to do a bear rug.
I didn't just want to rush over an drop it off at some other taxidermist without doing a little research and stopping by to look at some of their work. The hide still needs the lips and ears turned, another knuckle taken out of the paws, and a good fleshing. I could do this work myself but I'm slow so it would take me a few nights after work to chip through it. I didn't want to leave it out unsalted or unfrozen for that long. So, I folded it skin to skin, rolled it up and dropped it in my freezer tonight.
Is the hide ok in this condition in the freezer for a week or two? Are there any negative consequences for putting it in the freezer in this condition?
