I shot my first elk saturday and would like to tanit with the hair on. I have never done this before, but I would like to do this myself. Thanks
Return to Tanning Category Menu
click on the orange search button typ in tanning, all the info is there, grab a glass of your favorite beverage and enjoy.
take it to a taxidermist to sent to a tannery...its to much for you to handle if you haven't had any experience. You really don't want to get into this with an elk...I doubt you would even have a flesher to shave the hide. If you try tanning it yourself you're going to end up wasting a lot of time and money for NOTHING
Troy I'm not seeing any search button on the tanning page. help.
".", thank you for your advice, but I'm going to do it anyway. I think we all have bitten off to much once or twice in our lives. For me, thats when I learn the most, and the rewards are the greatest.
Try going to the website and refreshing the page. You should see an orange button to the left of the posting field. Some browsers do not support this link section. Good Luck with the Elk hide!
I recomend that you buy a instuctional tanning video.
