Re: Freeze dried

Thats a great looking mount. How old is it? My weasel might be heading to the freeze dryer.I can't seem to find anyone in my area that wants to do them at a reasonable price. Except the one guy that butched the one I got last year so I'm thinking of other options.

Re: Freeze dried

Be carefull who you use. I sent some things to what I thought was a VERY reputable place in Ohio and it turned out to be the worst decision I made in years. They screwed everything up from start to finish.

It's not the size of the shop, it's the quality of the work!

Re: Freeze dried

I can do weasels the old fashioned way, if interested. Fully tanned and can use the original skull ( cleaned well of course). You could ship it frozen, but you'd need to overnight it and have LOTS of ice packs all around it.
