Re: Proper care after a kill
I prefer my clients to get the animal to me in a few hours so I can take care of it. If that is not an option, they can freeze the animal whole. Place the animal in a plastic bag, one from both ends if needed. The legs and head can be tucked close to the body, but I prefer the body to be stretched out not rolled into a ball when frozen. You can try to get as much air out as possible, but this can be tough with whole animals the size of a coyote or bobcat. The next option, which is usually for clients heading out of state, is to get it to a close and reputable taxidermist that is willing to skin and salt dry the animal.
