Wifey found two of these at a yard sale .. Stockmann is a big retail chain in Europe with it's HQ in Helsinki Finland ..The barcode cannot be read with a US smart phone ..

Two prices , one is 379,00 MK which I thunketh might be Deutsch Marks but I dont believe that is the abbreviation for that currency , the other is 63,74 Euros which is around $US85 ..

I was initially thinking fallow deer until I had a closer look at the size of the neck. Beyond that, it is beyond my sphere of knowledge, but Dallan answered it for us anywayz.

For some reason I thought caribou would be much larger than that...unless it is a youngun'.

I'd say caribou, seen lots of them and they are rather small animals 3-4 feet tall.

Really? I'd put them between Mule Deer and Elk sized. Me and the wife shot a pair in Alaska too long ago. What species did you see? Quebec Labrador? Ours were Barren Ground 'bou.

I had an idea that caribou were similar in size to moose, well a smaller moose. Reindeer to me (from pics I've seen of them in Norway) are about the same as a good size Elk.

Whichever way, that is a very nice looking skin Groovy old mate.

Yep, took a look at the animal hide/fur I use for fly tying and I agree that it is probably a small caribou or reindeer. There is a slight difference in the texture of your hides hair to my material because your hide is tanned and mine is not.
