    This time of the year is busy, that's the going time, but you can ask for a rush order

    I understand what you're talking about. They started the season with a 70-90 day turnaround. Capes they received on October 6th haven't entered the tanning phase yet... so much for the turnaround estimate on those. In years past, I would already have several deer mounted that were taken in our early bow season. They never got caught up from last season and ended up taking their turnaround time off the web site. By the first week of December they were up to 140-160 days. After using them exclusively for the last 10 years, I reluctantly started to look elsewhere myself.

    I have used Carolina fur dressing in the past and they are usually pretty good with turn around time

    Key word there is at the moment . . . we all know what's coming. I have used the WLG for over 20 years. I recent years have been using the RUSH service back in 30-45 days every time. I had to decide if I wanted to mount my deer in July or February. You can increase your price and charge accordingly or eat it. I decided to do a 50/50 spilt I eat half. It worked out for me. They do great work that's worth the extra cost in my case.

    I know there are few good reliable ones out there and many I've probably never heard of BUT this day and age, with what I've experienced with the several I've dealt with, plus all of the horror stories that I hear, all to often, there is no way in HAIL that I would recommend a tannery...
    Good way to get someone mad at you and quick.. Seems it a crap shoot at best... Good Luck.
