In about a month, I'm backing up my brother on a Spring BB hunt here on Kodiak. We've gone together to purchase a harvest permit from Saltery Creek Ranch to take one of their buffalo bulls over in Ugak Bay on the same hunt providing the buff isn't shedding. (If they are shedding, we'll wait till the fall when I have a draw BB for the same area.)
I am not interested in having a head or shoulder mount done, but instead I'll do a euro mount. The ranch owner and others have recommended I take advantage of the hides value. So here is the question:
Are there taxi's out there that would be interested in purchasing a raw hide? What would be the best way to go about locating someone interested?
I'd particularly think I might find someone that would be interested in the full hide including the skinned out hide from the head.
Thanks in advance!
