Deer Wet Tan Service

  1. I wet tan deer capes only, so if you are looking for a quick turn around service, that is me. Tanning deer capes is all I tan.

    What you get with my service:
    You send your deer capes frozen, and when they arrive to my shop. I unthaw, and I tag each cape, with a plastic numbered tractor trailer seal. Once hide is thawed, I flesh any meat or membrane left on hide, I turn ears out all the way to the tips, I turn everything, and get the hides super clean from any meat or membrane. Capes get salted heavy, I like to salt them to where they are hard as a rock, to lock hair in. I then rehydrate cape, to get it ready for the pickle, the hide stays in the pickle for a few days, then i shave the plumped skin very smooth and thin, and put back into the pickle for a few more days. I then move it onto the tan. Hides come out of tan smelling really nice, I tumble each hide, I use a blower, then I comb out hair, and I do a overall quality inspection to make sure everything looks great. Then I bag and freeze. I charge $100 plus you pay shipping here and back.

    If you are interested in fleshing your own hides, turning ears, splitting everything and salting dry and then sending them to me, I charge $75 to rehydrate, pickle, tan and groom, same as above, you just do all the fleshing, turning and salting.

    My turn around time will be no more then 3 months, could be less, based on the quantity you send.

    Give me a call anytime (816)629-4388 Make sure to leave a message

    My website has tons of info on it, packing slip, how to ship, prices, samples of my work, etc.

    How do you rehydrate before the pickle? I am planning to tan my own capes, looking for the best methods.
