drying question
    #3573097 - 01/02/05 10:47 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

ok. so i used the lamp drying technique and thier relatively dry. almost crispy. used the black/navy blus shirt...it was a bit warm under that lamp , but hopefully not too warm. i just dont know. i didnt set the place on fire anyway...

so now what? i'm sure this is covered somewhere in the forum, i just dont know where. i'd like to be able to store a nice amount so i'll have something before the next cold spell. thanks

ok, i looked around...i dont know. maybe i'm blind. can someone give me a few links on preservation? with the humidity so high here on the coast, i dont think i'm going to be able to get anything cracker dry. not even crackers are creacker dry here. i stuck them under a lamp for a few hours and they shrunk...some are near crisp to crisp, but not completely water free.

i'm wondering what to do from here. right now , they are in a cardboard box with a lid, and 2 holes. one on either side to get air flowing through. i also stuck 2 napkins in there in hopes some more moisture will be soaked up. what little is left. thier weight is about 10% of what they were...i just dont know where to go from here...go to bed with them still in the box? bag them and hope they dont mold? do some chanting and dancing around the box and speak in tongues?

after you hunt, you dry, right? i figure putting it here would be in the natural order of things. this post needed a home. the hunting forum should be its home away from home. =D

when you defrosted them, you'd have a bag of soggy mush
