Item details

A single whitetail deer skin traditionally tanned and smoked. This particular skin is more uniform in thickness than most, especially near the edges. It's a about a medium thickness and would be great for almost all sorts of uses, such as clothing, footwear, bags, etc. It's about 11 square feet with a two bullet holes sewn flush, they are in the typical location just behind the two front legs. It doesn't have a single score mark from a skinning knife. There are some barb wire scars on it's rump and spine, which adds a unique touch to a finished skin. It's extremely soft throughout. Smoked with a blend of cherry, ash and aspen punk.

Brain tanning buckskin is a traditional method of tanning hides from many different locations and cultures around the world, including the north woods of the Great Lakes area. It's one of the most natural and environmentally friendly methods. The only ingredients are naturally occurring oils(brain,egg,veg oil, fats or soap), water, smoke and physical manipulation. Most of my skins I acquire from hunters that would otherwise throw out the hide, road kills or deer processors that would otherwise send them to a factory to tan them with harsh chemicals that harm our waterways.
