Yes, I am aware of the legality. As long as I prove that I did not kill it or purchase it. Since it is road kill the taxidermist or tanner will verify. I've thought about calling the game warren and get a written document. I was supposed to have it to someone withing ten days, but that is only three days away and it is still frozen.
Hi, I'm Kricket, a 51 yr mom with a 11 yr old daughter who is into Civil War re-inacting. She wants to ride with the Calvary, but she has to dress as a girl when not around the horses. She does NOT have a horse and we have little $$. I found a road kill otter (hit in the head--body fine) this week and have it in the freezer. I finally found someone today who will help me skin it. I need it tanned to garmet quality. What do I do after I get it skinned??
Any body know how I can do it myself with her--to teach her how they did it in the 1800's or am I better to send it off to a garment tanner?? Sugestions??/costs??
I want to use the otter to make her a muff, collar & cuffs for her winter coat or a hat> Since it is Nov in NC (lowest temp so far 33/one night) the Taxidermist said something about the skin might not be "Blue"??
Thanks for your assistance. Enjoy your laughter while reading this.
