    Default What about tanning?

    Are the rates the same if your just going to get one tanned?

    The prices quoted above are prices per Linear Foot, and thats all work done with felt and everything out the door, if your just getting it tanned it will be substantially cheaper. However it won't look as good then when its all done up into a rug.

    Default closer to 200

    black bear rugs will be closer to 200 by the lineal foot (nose to tail) brown bears will be slightly higher...
    tan only black bear hide around 75...still brown bears a little more

    I have one price list in front of me and it shows how long its been since I had one done. Black (and brown) bear rugs are quoted at $170 a linear foot for a rug. Tanning is quoted at $50.00 a linear foot for black bears, 60 for brown/grizzly. Fleshing is amost always extra. Sorry for the earlier confusion.

    Had two bears tanned this spring and they cost $400 to $500 depending on how much work you do. buts thats about average. Had them done a different places. $50 bucks a foot is the going rate plus hourly rate for the taxidermist.
