FROM CARCASS TO FINISH
We offer a full line of tanning services that covers everything from carcass to the finished product. We use our own personalized tags that identify each fur that is sent to the tannery so you always know that the animal you brought in is the one you are taking home. Whether you need a fox, coyote, or bear done we can do it for you at a very competitive price. All you need to do is bring us the animal in any form, carcass, skinned or dried and we will take care of the rest.
***These prices reflect a dry soft garment tan. Please contact us for wet-tanned taxidermy tanning prices.***
