    <P>I have a few birds that are wall worthy from this year. I have already taken in an eider and old squaw to be done but really can't afford a third. I have a great redhead I shot the last day of the south split (in the corn) in the freezer. Will it start to discolor with time? I'd like to wait another 4-5 months before taking it in.</P>

    <P>You can leave them in the freezer a long time . My longest is an Eider pair that went 6 years. As was earlier said I use an artificial bill and inject the feet thus getting around the freeze dried issues. Be sure to have the head tucked into the wing good for protection of the neck as they can be broken off. The best way I've seen yet to store long term is to vaccum seal the birds. This really protects your specimen from freezer burn. My best, Jim</P>
