    Hi. I have never attempting tanning before.Would like some information on how to tan some pelts from animals I trapped this past winter. I have a couple of mink that I have yet to skin and flesh. Also have a couple of timber wolves that are fleshed stretched and dried. I would like to have them tanned ,so they could be used for hats,gloves trim etc. What would be the best way to tan these for a beginner. Any information would be extremely helpful.
    Thank You

    By purchasing a tanning kit from a taxidermy supply company, you will receive almost everything you need, plus detailed directions on how to use them. usually you have to furnish salt and baking soda.

    Thanks for the replies. These sound like great products. I guess I should have mentioned that I live in Canada. Cant seem to find these products here. To get them shipped here would be to costly. Thanks again for the info.
