How quickly should you get a velvet rack to the taxi? Will it hurt it if the rack sits in a freezer for 60-80 days??

Default RE: Velvet preparation

If its a very early velvet like June or July, try not to wait that long. If its a fully formed antler with velvet, say late August and September, then no, that amount of time is fine. Look up Joe Boggs in Indiana, if youre in sw KY, he has large freeze dryers.
