coyote rug

I was wondering approximately the cost of having a coyote tanned at a tannery? I have never had any sent off and tanned,just wondering if that would be my best bet for making a rug? thanks for the help.

on coyotes is usually 40 to 45 dollars plus shipping both ways. Call a tannery and get a pricelist. I take in a good amount of skins annually, salt dry them and send then en mass to the tannery at the end of hunting/trapping season. Turn around time is usually 4 to 6 months.

..commercial tanning is the only way to go for a skin that is to be made into a rug. Home tanning cannot produce the nice soft, supple leather required for the quality finished product desired in a rug.

Be creative and think of desings to make your own tumbler? I'd think an old dryer with the heating unit taken out would make a fine tumbler.
