Aside from the guided hunting, alligator merchandise, and pre-tanned tanned hides, Porter’s processes the alligator hide for you in a certified, on-site facility. The processing fee entails the skinning of the gator, scraping and salting the hide for tanning purposes, and reserving whatever is requested for your taxidermy needs. Porter’s Processing has developed impeccable technique to ensure that the hide is not neglected or ruined in any way.
If tanning is requested, the processing fee also covers the insuring, packing, and shipping of the hides to and from the tannery. Please see “Tanned Hides” for more information.
