ISO copperhead skins

Would it need to be skinned before it was frozen? I don't have one right now but I will keep one next time as long as I can just throw it in the freezer?
I have one I already tanned you can have. It's not huge, maybe 24 inches or so. I'm in Byron.
I have several and can get all you want, most are dried, not sure how many are in the freezer.
