Coating the ends with anchor seal or something similar that will keep the ends from drying way faster than the rest of the log would be a good idea. Two other suggestions: Get the log off the ground to prevent rot from starting/continuing, and cover the log with a tarp to keep it from getting sun then rain so it can dry steadily. The sooner it’s cut the better, but these tips will help keep the intact log in good shape until you can get it sawn.
