    Just want to verify - A guy I know wants to send a lifesize bear to have it tanned, and just wants to drape it over a couch. Would he just get a standard dry tan, or would he be better off sending it to a tannery that specializes in fur dressing?

    I've never sent a backhide off to be tanned, but I'm assuming that a dry tan would be fine?

    Advice?

    I've sent out bears for "throws/ wall hangers" and the standard dry tan was all that was needed.
