The last couple shipments from them I have been a little disappointed. I think I am going to give Tubari a try.

What was the turnaround time for Moyles?

And, has anyone else here ever used a tannery other than Moyles or Tubaris? I am interested in checking out any other tannerys out there...especially if they do good quality with quicker turnaround time than the two mentioned..

Thanks  :tup:

8 months this time, last time was 4 months.  Any time fur prices tank, they get swamped with skins from trappers.

I've only ever sent them beaver, coyote and a few mink. I was very impressed with both the beaver and mink. The coyote batch was a little disappointing. I guess our E Washington coyotes might not get the best treatment when there are Montana coyotes there too. Still  :dunno:
