Game Hide Tanning Taxidermist & Game Rug Taxidermy Expertise

Species Experience

Kaleb Moore has experience tanning the hides of many species of North American game animals including bear, beaver, fox, otter, raccoon, coyote, deer, mink, sheep, cow, elk, caribou and moose.

Turnaround Time

You can expect Kaleb to complete hide tanning or rug tanning projects in less than eight months, with most being done in less than six months.

Proper Hide Care

Great end results begin with proper care in the field. Kaleb suggests that the hunter wipe off excess blood, when possible and cool down that hide as soon as possible. Freezing the hide within a few hours is extremely helpful in producing a great end result. Salting only need be done if the hide cannot be cooled or frozen within the first 24-36 hours.
