If you fold the furs nicely fur side out and roll them with 2-3 sheets of newspaper then put them in a ziploc freezer bag with all the air out they should store pretty good for ya. :mrgreen:



Also, if you go the the board index, go all the way to the bottom to the archives, there should be a lot of helpful info. in there.

if you are storing them for any length of time i have heard that you want to roll them up fur out, no flesh should be showing or that can freezer burn and cause slipage. freezing them flat is if you are going to sell beaver skins and you plan on selling them soon, not storing them for any significant length of time. buyers usually want the beaver pelts flat.
