I just want to tan one fox hide to make a rug for the wife. I see several kits listed in the catalogs. Just looking for suggestions on which one would work best.

Trust me on this one. If it's a garment tan you're looking for, you need to have a professional tannery do the job for you. Click on the Taxidermy Net Home above and then go to the suppliers and find a tannery near you. Send it to them and for less than $50 you can have a hide tanned professionally that will enable your wife to enjoy it, you take the credit, and everyone stays happy.

the best hands down!

Hey Ron, The easiest and BEST tanning kit I have ever used is EZ100 by Rittles. It produces a soft tanned skin and is very easy to use. It comes with complete instruction that are simple to understand. I think you will get much more satisfaction doing it yourself than sending it out. Also most tanneries will not deal with just average guys off the street. Most require a letterhead or business card to prove that you are in business(as a taxidermist). Bob C
