Deer Taxidermy

Dealing With Deer Ticks In Taxidermy

Posted by Waylen

What’s y’alls go to for skinning out fresh deer and not having 10 deer ticks crawl up your arm. Skinned one out today and had em crawling everywhere. I usually put them in the freezer for a week or 2 but I’m falling behind and freezer is full so if their fresh I’m trying to get them skinned but once the first one I see is on my arm I feel like deer ticks are everywhere
