 Gongrats on a awesome gator ! Are you just tanning or you mounting it ? use a presser washer to flesh it . Then salt for a few days then roll it up and send it to any reputable tannery that does gators.  Wild life gallery , Seminole fur and I to not sure but Carolina fur may do them also .

Thank you, I was pretty tickled with it.

when my son got his 10 ft South Carolina gator we let the local taxidermist / tannery do it. they charged 180.00 per foot, $1,800 plus shipping back to Pennsylvania.

Gators are not cheap.

I appreciate that and fully aware they wouldnt be cheap.  This wasnt my first time dealing with them.  Sending to a a tannery in AL, $42/foot.  Thanks for the help guys.

This ones right at 4' wide without the back. I didnt want the back to be included nor do I really have the space for a 4x12.  On top of that, I wouldn't pay that much for it.
