help!! I need a RELIABLE tannery!

Submitted by Jim Kelly on 12/13/99. ( )

I am looking for a good, reliable tannery. I have used [four major tanneries] with less than desirable results in fact in some cases devastating results. I just received 2 lifesize Dall Sheep with the legs almost false-cut off. I am at wits end and must find a tannery. I run an honest business and don"t mind paying more for quality tanning but please give me back capes in excellent condition! If anyone can help me please respond or email me. Thanks Jim

I have absolutely no luck either. I have tried all the above also. I have learned to get a good in-shop tan after having no luck with commercial tanning. I would like a good one for some of my tanning, so let me know if one works out.
