Misty Ridge Tanning

I just mounted my first deer cape of the year. This cape was wet tanned by Dave at Misty Ridge Tannery. WOW! The cape mounted like a dream. Not one hole to fix either. I get the capes to Misty Ridge green frozen, he turns them, salts them, AND completely detail shaves each cape. It saves me a ton of time and well worth it at $69 a cape. Capes are shaved even and THIN and have plenty of stretch. Great turnaround also. Dave is a gentleman to deal with to boot. If you try his tan I doubt you'll ever want to change tanneries again.

i must be behind the times, I thought most tannerys charge about $30. to tan a deer cape.

I never have got that; time is money thing either, must have something to do with Old but I have a lot of trouble paying someone else my money for doing something, I do for a living.
Is it just me ; I see the young going to out sourcing all their work, then whining because they have none.
