These are tanned white-tailed, or whitetail, deer skins without tails. They have a reddish-brown coat in the spring and summer that turns to gray-brown in the fall and winter.
Please note that deer have a hollow hair and are not ideal for rugs. If you walk on them or let a large dog sit on them, the hair will break and shed over time. They are ideal for wall mountings, floor displays that are not walked on, etc.
The hair length is approximately 1.5" to 2" long. The difference between the different grades is how many holes there are and the location of the holes. #1 grade hides may have holes located at the sides of the hides. These hides have no tails.
They average around 50" long and 25" wide down the middle. Each skin weighs approximately 2.5 lbs or 1.13 kg.
White tail deer are not endangered and are not subject to CITES.
A U.S. Fish & Wildlife export permit is required for all shipments outside the U.S.
