Re: tanning question

Take it to a taxidermist and have him/her send it to a good leather tannery.
Visit http://www.pataxidermy.com to find a good taxidermist near you.

Re: tanning question

why does he need a good taxidermist if he should send it to a tannery?

He never said it would be easy;
He only said it would be worth it!

Re: tanning question

There is prep work that needs to be done before the hide is sent to the tannery. Unless he knows how to do it.
