We often get calls from people that want to tan a cow or buffalo hide themselves. They want to know if our Complete Home Tanning Kit
will work. The short answer is not quite
. The process will work, you just need more compounds than are provided in that kit.
In response to the demand, we have put together a kit for tanning Buffalo and Cow hides. It is the same process as the other kits, it just has more 'stuff'... more crystals, more oil...
The average Elk hide is 22 sq. ft. where the average Cow hide is over 40 sq. ft.
The kit costs $150.00 + S&H
to order.---Please Note---
We would like to add that tanning a buffalo or cow hide is a great deal of work. They are big, heavy when wet, and need to be thinned down which takes some good old elbow grease.
There have been a few people that have tanned multiple cow and buffalo hides and love the process. Most just tan the one hide for the experience.
