My local taxidermist sends out deer hides to a tannery in the Carolinas and they come back looking really nice. But he doesn't want to do a water buffalo hide that I have. He's too busy with this year's deer mounts and it would be outrageously expensive to boot.

I am in New England. Does anyne know of a tannery that does this work around here? The hide is enormous and is in a solid-frozen lump and I'm afraid of a thaw!

Thank you

Frank, there was a tannery near Mohawk, NY that did a Kudu for me and it came out great a few years back. I can't remember the name, but I did ship it to them and they did it and shipped it back. I would google tanneries in Eastern NY.
