Need help locating quality tanner for Caribou hides

Submitted by Russ on 12/18/00. ( )

I have (2) Caribou hides I would like to get tanned with the hair on.
I live in the Michigan area but am open to all suggestions. I need help in locating a tanner that does quality work at a reasonable price. Thanks for any info.

Don't ever get confused with that "quality" being in the same sentence of "reasonable price." If you want a good job, price shouldn't enter into it.

I use Carolina Fur Dressing and I'd be hard pressed to find better, but I think they are screening new customers now as they are suffering overload. Most tanneries that cater to us are conscientious and if they get a hide in good shape, you should be able to expect a quality job in return. Remember, they had no control over the field care and shop care it got before they got to it, so you have to insure that neither you nor the hunter made their work harder than it needed to be.

We are located in Michigan
