I would like to know if anyone has used either of the companies for tanned hides in the past and are they reputable companies? We have always used DP (don't cringe) and our business is growing but we want to turn out better mounts. Also, Do you have the shrinkage as you dowith DP? Thank You for any help.

They have done all my deer capes for the last 2 years. Shrinkage? No, you will never have the shrinkage of a DP hide using a tanned hide.
I have used Carolina in the past for wet tan. I really liked their tan, however back then (this was a few years ago) the turnaround time was not good. I have since used East Coast Tannery - great product good turnaround time.
I have never used dry preserve for anything other than birds. But I can tell you with either of these two I got very little shrinkage.
Thank you for the response. I think we are going to send one to them to see how they do.
