    First Buck Head Help - Lincolnshire

    Good evening,

    I shot my first Roe Buck yesterday, a nice 4 pointer.

    I am looking to do a skull mount.

    I intend to skin the head tomorrow and freeze, I am then on honeymoon and away for a bit so it will be a few weeks before I get round to it. Is there anything special I need to do to freeze it?

    I understand the theory and have the means to boil (an electric hob and a large pan I use for fishing bait so as to not annoy the wife!) but don't have a saw and guide to do the cut.

    Is there anyone in Lincolnshire (I am near Sleaford) who has a guide and saw that would be willing to help me - I have no problem buying the kit and muddling through if needed but I don't really want to mess up my first one, any help would be greatly appreciated.
