    I have used Shismaref Tannery to do a Grizzly Bear hide, a Musk Ox hide and a Wolf hide. Very good work.

    Tundra tanning in Wasilla did a wolf, a coyote and a reindeer for me. Good work fast turn around and a fair price

    Default Fur Tanning

    I used Alpha Fur in Anchorage a couple years ago to tan my caribou hide. It came back really nice. I believe my taxidermist uses them as well. I called to have my wolverine tanned and was informed that there was now a minimum order. So if you have several hides you could still use them.

    I stopped by and picked up my wolf from Tundra tanning in big lake. It was beautiful. The tan was very soft and it was very clean. He had a booth set up at the rondy fur auction and i gave him the fur. The turn time was only 2 months! This particular wolf was quite large, the nose is higher then a standard door with the tail on the floor! I an going to do a rug mount myself. This tanner did three hides for me last year also. So i would say he is reputable and fair. Viktor

    Alpha Furs did my Black Bear last year and it turned out great. They're currently doing my Musk Ox.
