    So I will have this massive Beefy skin. What next ?

    Got a few going to works tomorrow. One has an awesome skin like a big red Tiger, that are going to nicely remove and chill it so I can collect Thursday. Will it be ok if I freeze it while looking for a place to tan it? I m in Waikato if anyone ca suggest a place to talk to about it. Cheers

    No reason why you cant freeze it, i often freeze chamois skins and actually have a tahr skin in the freezer from last years ballot, better get onto that! I would dare say a cow skin would take up a fair bit of room though...

    Fold in half belly to belly then half again belly to back then both ends to middle then ends to middle again then fold end right over to other end then place in bag for freezer or make up a saline solution and leave in that until you take to tanners. There are some good colours on those beef skins.

    Sounds more complicated than folding the bed sheets!

    Fold skin to skin on the first one down the spine is the important bit.

    Iv had skins in the freezer for literally years and they have been fine.

    What are you going to do with it once it has been tanned Happy?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    We have an interesting one in our boardroom at our main office, it's funny when reps etc come for a meeting and comment on it and we say "oh, that's old #684, real good skin, not so good at making milk..."

    I had the skin from a bull tanned several years ago. It was laid out on the floor of a guest bedroom alongside a Fallow skin and drew a lot of comments (both good and bad) across the years. Both are up in the attic now we are in our new home. I got vetoed by she who must be obeyed.

    I hope you ask for your balls back out of her handbag before you turn up at Tobys Memorial.
