Did something different with a few of our hides this year.....had them tanned ( http://www.amtan.com/
) just to see what we could do with them. Louann wants to slam one on the wall but as her choice is the biggest one that will be a problem......it is 13' 7" from tip to tip and 43" wide ........so what wall???
The smaller ones are 12' 2", 10' 1" and about 9' 6".......she is laying on the big one.
And they smell GOOD.......new leather smell! And I just cringe at the thought of her taking a knife to them!! But as they are done and here....we'll see.
Anyway.......a expensive thing to do with the fruits of the hunt. Cost $6 a centimeter across the belly.....the big one being 103 centimeters!! Ouch!
