    Tanning service in/around Wellington area

    Hi

    Anyone know of a tanning service close to Wellington who will do Cow and Deer? Mainly interested in Cow as I don't have room in the freezer for something that big so will need to deliver by hand potentially.

    Regards
    Ash

    Bob Spain in the Hawkes Bay... Think he lives just outside of Napier but I usually send him the skin frozen wrapped in paper and then in a plastic bag or two.

    Great service, great results, a true gent and an amazing hunter!

    what about that tannery at Oruoa Downs by Levin/Foxton ?
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Sorry team, only just saw this

    Bob Spain - (06) 870 0734

    A real gent and an "A grade" Hunter!

    First met him in Fiordland during the Bugle, his pack weighed 15-18 kg and he was in there for 2 1/2 weeks!
