    Skin Tanning Chch

    Can anyone reccomend someone in Chch to tan some skins for me? I have a bull tahr skin and a buck chamois skin to be done, they have been in the freezer for a while now and the mrs seems to think its more important to fill the freezer with bread and other crap. I also have a black rabbit skin I wouldnt mind having tanned if possible.
    Dont suggest I do it myself, im too lazy, and will most probably make a hash of it.
    Cheers

    Adam Cowie of animal skin tanning services here in invers. Very reasonable and I've been v satisfied w what he did for me. There'll be a chilled freight service down here too so freight shouldn't be a hassle either.

    I got a fallow done recently and it was very well done.
    I have a nephew who works there, I don't think I got a special price but thought it was very reasonable considering the quality.Big Game Taxidermy NZ Ltd - New Zealand Expediting

    I sent mine to Bob Spain, in Hawkes bay. Did an amazing job. $100 for a tahr.
