If you are uncertain how to skin or care for your trophy, please call and I will try to assist you with directions and support. For a fee, I will meet with you and help you skin the animal. REMEMBER, bacteria starts to grow as soon as the animal expires. This will cause tissue breakdown and this can ruin your trophy. Never let anything stay in a cooler too long, it should be frozen ASAP (within 24-36 hours).
Do not cut the animal's throat. Make a vertical cut around the body, 6" behind the shoulder. Work down to the head leaving 6" of neck attached to the head. We will complete the skinning from this point.
Leave whole. Be careful not to damage the animal. Freeze or deliver immediately.
Do not wrap in paper, as this will draw out moisture. Wrap in plastic and freeze until delivery.
Wrap in wet towel, then wrap in plastic and freeze until delivery.
