    Axis deer have gorgeous coloring and differs from fallow deer by the spots on the spine. Also known as Chital deer, Cheetal deer, and Spotted deer, their skins are in high demand for decoration. They are ideal for wall mountings, floor displays that are not walked on, etc. because deer have hollow hair. If you walk on them or let a large dog sit on them, the hair will break and shed over time.

    These are regular, trading post grade axis deer hides.  They are not upholstery grade so they are not suitable for high-end furniture manufacturing (e.g. chair backings).

    The small hides are under 30" long measured down the middle of the skin on the skin side (tails are not included in the measurement). 

    These axis deer skins are alum tanned. Hides may or may not include tails.

    Axis deer are not endangered. In fact, there are so many of these, that culling operations are undertaken to keep them from becoming overpopulated and damaging the ecosystem. The animals are not killed just for their skins. Our supplier tells us that 97% of the animal is re-purposed for meat, pet food, antlers for decoration, etc. The skin is saved and tanned.
