I'm hoping Boco or any other knowledgeable person can help me out as I plan on frost scraping a beaver in the next few days due to the cold snap. I also was wondering how long it would take to that a beaver hide I have rolled up in the freezer.

I show -28 f for Friday and Saturday prediction. If you won't get cold enough where you are swing by, I will put the coffee on and have a jug of Irish Cream on hand.

Boco how long do you think it'll take to thaw my hide for nailing. How long do you let yours thaw for?

I took two beaver hides out a few hours ago,I'll nail them up and put them out after the hockey game tonight.
Once they been out of the freezer for a couple hours they are generally soft enough to unroll,then they thaw quickly.

I'll watch for your post.
When you put them out to freeze,make sure the morning sun cant shine on them-it'll soften them up even at 30 below.

I have a smallish beaver thawing in the kitchen sink tonight. Might nail it out tomorrow and give it a try in the next couple days. Cold enough here at night for sure and I will be able to give it a try in the morning.

Thanks for all the tips, Boco!
