    Default need to tan a 'bou hide

    I shot a caribou last summer and I want to have the hide tanned. Who should I go with in Fairbanks? How much does a tanning run up here? Thanks.

    Default pretty much

    I've never done it before and I don't want to ruin it. It's a beautiful hide so I want it done right.

    Default It'd be hard to mess up...

    specially, if you follow directions...

    There are plenty of websites on the INET that'll show you just how to do it...you could save yourself TONS of money & earn a lil on the side once you learn how (tell your friends & neighbors, you'll do it for them for a small fee)

    Default I have what you need

    I have a complete DIY tanning kit that I want to sell, including an electric mini flesher. I have tanned bou, fox, lynx, muskrat, and sheep with it. I enjoyed the tanning process, and I put less holes in my hides than have come back from a tannery.

    I will post on the for sale board in a couple days with pics. PM me if interested.
