I have Tanned a couple ( with the hair on ) and have them displayed. I used a salt and alum soloution to tan them. Fleshing them is a pain in the butt, but it's nice when it's done and ya did it yourself.

The Minnesota Deer Hunter's Association has drop of cannisters all over the state for the hides.
Most Deer Hunters, including myself, drop off all of their deer hides in their containers.
The money from the hides goes for deer habitat, research, and deer hunter's representation at the Minnesota State house.
MDHA is a great organization.

Don't rightly know.. I'm a "great brown hunter" myself

But I give the hides I got to my friends.. sort of a bribe to help me to write to our local politicians Very Happy

I tan my own. I also use the salt and alum technique but I have done it with hair on and hair off(white ash solution).
Sometimes I cheat by putting them in a dryer with no heating element to soften them, then fold them into a cone over a smoke pit to waterproof them
sorry Gelan should have just said all you hunters.

regards

My hides become clothing, drums, rattles, sheaths, covers, bags, laces and flies.
some I use as rawhide for drums and rattles. For soft hides I brain tan them. I don't usually smoke them unless it is for footwear.

Well, I don't always keep them, but those that I do...usually deer or good roo hides, I tan using a Tanning Kit, leaving the hair on, that is available pretty cheaply here in Australia. It does a great job, and as Joe said.....you have the satisfaction of having done it yourself.

The Leder Tanning Kit is the one I use, although it gives the leather a soft blue colour. I think it is a chrome tanning process.

Cheers, Vince

I wear mine, tanned a couple, but lots of work.
Did a couple in raw hide and a few in buck skin.

Lots of ways, but easiest is to send them to a tannery, pretty pricey.

They do a good job with both hair-on and buckskin.

I've always given mine to a few people who tan and use the leather and now where I work we have a youth group learning some of the traditional leatherwork crafts, drum and rattle making with rawhide, moccassin and glove making, etc, so I suppose I'll be donating to them. It's nice to see people aren't letting them go to waste.
