Im going to be busy this weekend!

Postby montana bound » Fri Feb 28, 2014 9:15 pm

Went down stairs to take out 2 ducks that I have prept to mount for tomorrow.
Open the freezer and :crying: My freezer died!
Its not a large freezer but it was full, I put the 2 ducks for the morning in the fridge then made room in the house freezer and packed the 10 ducks that I have yet to skin in there with the 2 geese that I prept last weekend , so they are all good.
The work will be turning ears and fleshing the 4 coyote, 5 redfox and 2 mink that I had in there from this years trapping.
I bought one of those hand held fleshers that run off of my air compressor(It just arrived 2 days ago)Hope it works well.
I need to get them all fleshed and prept and in the salt this weekend . :fingerhead:

That sucks :no:

I try to make sure to check each freezer about every other day just to be sure. I now get freezers with temp alarms as a backup check. You never know when they will go out or a door doesn't close

It is a old freezer and I have been planing on getting a larger new freezer so That will be happening soon.
Im just glad Im doing work out of it right now. It would have really sucked if it had set for a week or more instead of a day or two.

Well after some thought and a cleaning out the mystery containers from the house freezer I was able to get all the hides into the freezer so I can get back to doing what I had planned on doing this weekend .
