I'm about to head back to Africa to hunt for a nice crocodile, but I have no clue what to do with it once its down. I know I want a plane skull/euromount to display in an entertainment center, but I have no clue what to do with the hide. I am no a huge fan of life-size croc mounts as they always seem to look artificially wet or seem to look dry and dusty. I think it is very difficult to create a natural looking croc. In addition to that, I just don't have the space for something that big. I was thinking about having them tan the leather for boots, so I wouldn't want them cutting through the belly. I also know that its a different tanning process than regular hide. If anyone has any advice on what to do for prep in the field and what to do with the hide, please let me hear it.
