Wanted to get some opinions on the best way to preserve cape/meat/hide should I get lucky in Aug. Here are the details, I am flying up to AK from Arkansas in Aug to hunt sheep and bear. On the return trip, I fly from Fairbanks to Anchorage to Denver. In Denver, my wife picks me up from the airport and we drive back to Arkansas (she is staying with family in Colorado while I go hunting). So in all the trip back will be roughly 3 days. My partner said he has a freezer so I can freeze everything before I leave Alaska. So what is the best way to preserve everything? Obviously if I drop off the sheep cape and/or bear hide to a taxidermist there in AK to have to complete mount done, the shipping cost would be astronomical once it is complete. But I'm thinking the hair might start to slip if I try to bring it back with me. I think someone mentioned getting the hide tanned up there, but not mounted, then shipping it back down here. Is that feasible? Any idea how much that would cost?
Also, if thoroughly frozen, will the meat last 3 days if I can keep it in a cooler and keep it iced? Or am I better off trying to overnight it? How much would that be? I just don't want anything to spoil. Thanks for the help.
