need a tannery!

Submitted by chris on 12/2/99. ( cshicks@hiwaay.net ) 208.166.127.161

I'm just getting into taxidermy, and from everything I have read on this forum I need to tan the hides to ensure a quality mount. However, I don't wont to make that much of an investment in a fleshing machine right now. I believe it would be better to try and use a tannery. If anyone knows of a tannery in the southern Tenn or north Al area please let me know. Thanks for all the help.

Need a tannery..do ya

I highly reccommend Barrett Fur Dressers. He is located in northern Mississippi...Columbus, Mississippi. I wish I could remember his phone number...but if you are recieving any taxidermy trade magazines he'll be one of the advertisers. Chuck Barrett is the owner...and he really does good work for me. Tell him I sent you.
