Have moose hide, need to tan (or have tanned?)

Submitted by Chris Tremblay on 11/6/00. ( ctrembla@cisco.com )

Hi folks,
I have a cow moose hide in the freezer (been salted once) which I
would like to have tanned but the few non-committal quotes I have received
are daunting and I'm thinking of trying it myself. Problem is that
I haven't seen any kits which cover very large mammals, just deer size
or smaller.

Overall the process doesn't sound out of my league but I also don't want
to screw it up. Any suggestions? Or price quotes? (Even better).

No Kit needed Just LIQUA TAN

If you want to try this yourself you can get some Liqua
Tan 1 qt and 1 qt of Tanning oil #1, Citric acid 5# .
Thats all that you will need. If you don't have a round
knife then you can use a wire Wheel on a hand grinder
and thin it with that. I'm not sure you will want to learn
on a moose but I guess you gotta start somewhere. If you
want to send it out then email me your address and I can
give you a tannery that is close to you.If you end up wanting
to do this also email me your address and I can send you a
free booklet on how to tan.
