Hi! Need some advice. I found a fresh killed giant raccoon on the side of the road. I skinned him out and started to flesh him. I realize I'm going to need to purchase a flesher cause there is a lot of fat on him! Can I just roll the hide up and freeze it then thaw it when I'm ready to get the fat and excess flesh off? Thanks!! HPA is GREAT!

If you were close by I would say bring it over and I would flesh it for you.

Oh my gosh! I didn't know that! I started teaching myself tanning and I thought it would be fun to try to tan a raccoon hide. What should I do?

Call the Game Commission and get a permit for a roadkill. I think there $25
