    Default Small Bear Tanning Cost?

    Dropped off a small 5' black bear this afternoon to get tanned at the tannery here in Anchorage. Was a little shocked at the price tag, everyhting was turned, split, fleshed, etc. except for the very last bones right before the claws, I missed those. Total came to $200, seemed a little steep to me but then again I dont get much tanned.

    Does this sound right on the money?

    Thanks-

    That seems decent, some places charge more than that. Up in the $50-80/ft range for many taxidermy shops. $200 breaks down to what $40/ft? Not bad, atleast I dont think so.

    40 -45 per foot for tanning alone seems to be standard... if you have all the fleshing and feet,head, lips, and ears done... good news is... after july 1 you can sell them and get aobut 50% back
