Need my Bear Hide Tanned....
« on: September 17, 2021, 01:01:25 PM »
I recently shot my first bear.  Its a small one so I'd like to get the hide tanned and not the rug mounted.  The head and paws have been removed and I've salted it and stored it in the freezer.  Can someone tan it for me??

Thanks in advance,

Tim

If itís been fleshed out, the cost runs 150 dollars give it take at , at moyles tannery in Idaho.  They have a website and price list if you google them.

Be careful with freezing salted skins.

Look up gods creation taxidermy in Waitts Lake for tanning

I donít think a salted hide can freeze but may hold water and possibly rot in freezer.

Thanks for the info.  That's not too much for a good bear hide.

I tanned my first bear's rug myself this last winter. I salted, fleshed and pickled it over the course of about a month. Fleshing it all the way down to the follicles was way more work than I expected took me a couple weeks. I think it cost me about $20 for the vinegar and pickling salt. I did it in some plastic storage bins. I've never done anything bigger than a rabbit before and am fairly happy with how it turned out. I didn't want one of those fake heads with teeth in it or feel like spending $1200 on a taxi, but your route of going straight to the tannery is what I will end up doing in the future.

Wow!  That's cool that you did this yourself.  Thanks for sharing the information.  I'm pretty novice at tanning.  Cheers!
