Hey man - not sure if there is anyone here who 'actually' does that as far as a dry leather type tanning....however, give Ron Vanderpol a call at 587-3735. I know he can help you out some way or another!

I hope Ron is an understanding guy. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want my # posted on an open forum unless that's a business phone. A PM might be better. Don't mean to butt in.

I did my first tanning last year. It was a process, but it turned out pretty nice. I did the brain tanning method. Pretty cool that every game animal has enough brain to tan its own hide. Lots of scrapping!

McNasty hit the nail on the head, he doesn't mind word of mouth business as there is NO BETTER ADVERTISEMENT IN THE WORLD than that of word of mouth from happy customer! Also, he only has 1 listing if you look him up in the book - I believe it is both work and home as his shop, like many others, is at his home- he isup off hwy 95A in Molino...great down to earth guy!

...and for what it is worth, I was on the phone with him while posting - lol

Try Chad Cooper at Cooper's Taxidermy. He is also a member of this forum. He does great work.
