Looking For Animal Skeleton

Reply
Hi Everyone !

Sorry to bother you, my name is Alice and I am an archaeologist working on indigenous methods of hunting and fishing. I am now working on an archaeological site North-east of Louisiana (Reno Brake). In order to understand how animals were caught and cooked I am working with the skeletons of modern animals (to identify the species, recognize what parts were eaten, etc.). Some of those animals are not of common consumption anymore (at least in the city where I am, in New Orleans). Would any of you by any chance know of a hunter (or maybe yourself ?) who would agree to give me the skeleton / sell me the whole animal ?

Here is the whole list :
Deer
Raccoon
Possum

That would be if enormous help, and anything helps :) it doesn't have to be fit for human consumption, I just need the bones ...
Thank you for your attention,
Take care,
Alice
