I've been asked to provide some deer legs for a local wildlife group so that they can go and lay some 'fake' deer trails to help educate the visiting school kids. (I've also given them Red, Muntjac and Roe skulls previously).
I've got some Fallow, Roe and Muntjac legs ready in the freezer, but I'm wondering how i can best preserve them for use?
I'm thinking that I could maybe inject with Formaldehyde and then dry out and mount on a stick so that they can be pressed into the mud to leave tracks? ( The deer tracking shoe would clearly not work as it leaves other visible sign ).
I've also considered just carving some replicas out of wood, but it would be great if I could use the real legs!
Any ideas for a solution greatfully received!
