Time To Empty Your Freezer And Fill Your Wall!
To many folks, this picture doesn’t mean much, but to duck and goose hunters this picture can mean literally a thousand things! It can sum up a once in a lifetime hunt, a dog’s first retrieve, a trophy bird you’ve been after for years, or a child’s first trophy that introduces them to the addictive sport we call waterfowl hunting. Unfortunately, many of us spend entirely too much time looking at our trophy birds wrapped in plastic bags stuck in the freezer than on the wall where they can be admired for years.
Procrastinating a trip to your taxidermist’s shop can eventually lead to freezer burn which can decrease the quality of a duck mount or goose mount. Of course, the best way to prevent freezer burn is not to hesitate to get your bird to a taxidermist. If for some reason it will be a while before you drop your trophy off, there are several steps you can take to prevent freezer burn. First is to make sure the bird is in a freezer bag large enough to for the bird to fit and be properly sealed. Do not use a plastic shopping bag to store your bird in as it cannot be sealed allowing freezer burn to set in quickly.
I’ve been guilty of using the old’ wal-mart bag to store ducks in but it is always temporary and I switch to a good freezer bag for long-term storage. Another thing you can do is wrap the head and the feet in a wet paper towel. Freezer burn is the dehydration of the skin and this wet paper towel acts as a sacrificial layer of moisture. Finally, make sure you remove as much air from the freezer bag as possible. of and your bird will be safe in the freezer until you get it to a bird specialist such as Cypress Slough Taxidermy.
