If you guys can give me a couple of days....my neighbour has offered to
teach me how to tan a pelt we will be receiving back from the butcher next
week. I'll happily pass on the info.

I'd be interested in hearing the replies to this post. I was planning on
getting some pelts
tanned this year, but not at those prices.
I'm kinda curious as to why the taxidermist has to take the pelt off.
Either we do it when we
butcher at home or the butcher does it when we take them out. Do you have
to haul the carcass
to the taxidermist and then haul it somewhere else for processing the meat?
Paul - how did the bran, etc tanning come out? I may have to give home
tanning a try. I've
done rabbit hides, but haven't felt like tackling a sheep hide.
