I live in Southeren Ohio and I want to get started just by tanning coyote & doe hides(hair on). I just bleached a skull from my buck I got this year and I want to learn to do more. What equipment should I try to make or get to tan hides? Right now I am not starting a business, just doing this for myself. Thanks!!

Welcome!  Well, as you will find there are a bunch of different types of tanning processes and name brands of tans.  When I did my first deer wall hanger cape, I ordered the kit from McKenzie, a taxidermy supply company thats pretty much like the Wal-Mart of taxidermy supply.  The kit had a DVD, the tan and a oil.  It was VERY easy to follow, you can watch the dvd before you get started so you know what to expect, and it acutally came out really good.  It was a great way for me to learn and was very happy with the kit.  I have since moved to a different tan, but it worked great!  Also any questions you think you have, up on top of the page.  ANY question you think you have, its in there!!

U mentioned the VA. If u r a veterin and were actively disabled u may qualify for educational assistance to go to some schooling. I met another vet that got his taxidermy schooling compleatly paid. Just a thot if this applies to u.Lots of benefits out there for vets if u dig around. Good luck and thank u for ur service to our great country!
