  1. Be sure skins are thoroughly fleshed and salt dried before shipping.
    (Furbearers for intact fur dressing may be sent trapper dried.)
    WE DO NOT ACCEPT FRESH OR FROZEN SKINS.
    Do not forget to split and dry the tail!
  2. Skins must be completely dry upon receipt or you risk spoilage. Damp salted hides will spoil in storage or shipping.
  3. Taxidermy specimens must have all lips and ears turned, tails split, and paws fleshed out.
  4. Dry all capes and mounts with the ears folded down toward the center of the cape. This will help prevent them from being damaged during shipping.
  5. Fold all skins into pieces smaller than 4 ft. x 4 ft. or they will not fit in our storage bins.

Damage Policy

Moyle Mink & Tannery is a commercial tannery, and although we try our best to avoid it, minor damage sometimes occurs. If the damage is minor and repairable, we will expect you to repair it as part of your work as a taxidermist and likewise we will make no compensation.

Additionally, due to the many variables of Mother Nature—including the health of the animal, weather, prime condition of the skin, and the improper handling of some skins—ALL TANNING IS DONE AT THE OWNER’S RISK. Skins accepted on this basis only.
