Experience and recommendation--tannery--grizzly bear

Submitted by Bruce Anderson on 05/30/2004 at 13:25. ( bruce@adventuretaxidermy.com )

Looking for recommendations and experience with tannery for life-size and flat hide tanning for grizzly bear. Prefer wet tan for life-size. If you have had good experiences with a particular tannery, I would like to know who it is. My past experience has not been good. Holes, oily hair, too thick..........you know,all the things that are out of our control once the skins go to the tannery.

Thanks to this forum, we can share experiences, and I would appreciate input from other taxidermists who have grizzly bear knowledge.

Post here, or e-mail. Thanks in advance for your input.

I've worked with bear from a couple different tanneries and really like how Yost does them. I think they have a 2 month turn around on bear (you'd have to call to make sure). Phone# is 920-743=7162 Very friendly people to do business with.
