Merry Christmas to all of you.

Have any of you used any of the tanneries in Wisconsin. Just wondering about the pros and cons and where they're located.

If you can use speedee delivery you can save a lot of coin.Stay away from USA FOXX.

I've used USA Foxx in the past and wasn't happy with them. Been using Moyles for several years now but the shipping kills you. I just wondered if anyone has used an in-State tannery.

Heard USA FOX was sold to someone else so cant vouch for them, original owners were thieves.

It isnít in Wisconsin but Sleepy Creek is close by in Iowa. Shipping would be less than to Moyles, especially if you use spee dee.

Note - Iíve not had any tanning done at Sleepy Creek so canít vouch for the quality. Others on here seem to be satisfied.

Wild things fur in Lafarge has sent some furs out for me I have been satisfied. I think they ship all their fur together so shipping is a non-issue but not sure who they use.

I shipped some furs to Sleepy Creek last year and was satisfied with the results. Mind you they are not as good as Moyles but then you get what you pay for. I have heard that SC has problems with smaller critters like muskrat and fox but I only sent in beaver, raccoon and coyote.

Sleepy creek did pretty good on some beaver and muskrat I sent them last year. Used spee dee for best shipping rates. I saw this year sleepy creek raised their prices and moyles is now cheaper on most critters if your getting anything more than a single of any species tanned.

I know they used to do fur on tanning but that was over a decade ago.

Yes my raccoon were ok from sleepy Creek but like stated not as well as moyles. The fox I sent them were not handled well and had to sell them for wall hangers.

Thanks for all your input. I think I'll just stay with Moyles. They do a great job and I'll use Speedy to hopefully lessen my shipping costs.

Last time I checked, Speedy didn't deliver that far and if I wanted to use Moyles I needed to use FedEx.

You could try to find someone local who is also shipping there to share shipping costs.

Iím not sure combining shipping would be a good idea. Could cause a lot of confusion in the Moyle receiving department. The money saved might not be worth it.

Yost Fur Dressing in Sturgeon Bay. Not the cheapest, but they do good work!
