I figured out how much it would cost me to tan a deer cape at home and it is $6.50 The tannery here charges $110 for a deer cape and all they do is tan the cape. No fleshing, splitting eyes and lips, or shaving. Tanning only. I understand that tanning at home involves labor, but if I have to flesh and split everything and shave the cape anyways isn't it a no brainer to save all that money and tan myself or am I missing something? I'm curious what tanneries charge you guys down in the states and if it's worth it for you. $6.50 compared to $110 is a big difference for me.
