Hides and Pelts for Sale

NOTICE : ALL the hides and pelts below have been tanned to perfection by the worlds best wildlife fur dressing company. Each hide or pelt has its leather side buffed to a nice smooth finish. Each pelt is very soft, just like cloth and could be made into any article or clothing. Look at the leather side of the beaver pelt below. All the hides and pelts are like that.

All the hides and pelts may have bullet holes or a few skinning cuts which is normal. Most of these have NOT been repaired, which again is normal. This is the way most want them and the way they are sold. All the hides and pelts below are Class AAA unless otherwise noted.

All items on this page are one of a kind and are close out items and all sales are final and non refundable: It is just way to much work to put one of a kind items on and off the web site!

In ALL -repeat - ALL the shopping cart boxes below on the WHOLE PAGE
DON'T order more than one hide in the order box.

There is only one hide per box available - NO more unless otherwise specified in the order box itself in which I usually write - Several Available

This quality of tanned pelts are not cheap to get professional tanned. Then besides the price of tanning, you have to buy the raw hide, then there is fleshing, salting, stretching and drying, and shipping back and forth to the tannery. I am offering a super value here for these top notch tanned pelts.

All the pelts and hides shown on this page make wonderful throw rugs to put over the furniture in your home or office!

deer hidesBeautiful Tanned Whitetail Deer Hides

These are beautifully soft tanned by the worlds finest tannery. They are soft as cloth and can be hung over couches, chairs, elc. They also make great wall hangings. Deer hides are covered with hair, not fur. These hairs can be broken and shouldn't be walked upon.

I have seen wonderful paintings done on the backs of these hides, just like the Beaver Hides below. You will be delighted with one of these hides.

Deer hides are known as the aristocrat of american leather. Nothing else compares. Tanned deer hides are very soft, flexible and tough. The leather can take a beating and keep going. Many moccasin's are still made from tanned deer leather.

Beaver Pelts

Beaver PeltsThese beautiful beaver pelts have very long silky fur. These pelts are fully prime and have been hand picked by me out of hundreds of hides to be the best of the lot. Each pelt was perfectly stretched to give the exact shape I wanted. You won't find beaver pelts taken care of like this anywhere else.

After trimming, Artists will take these beaver pelts and stretch them on a wooden hoop frame, made from a slender tree. The pelts are tried around the inside of the hoop with rawhide, just like the real Indians used to do. The pelts can even be wetted first, then they dry super smooth on the hoop. Blankets and Super Blankets are references to trappers and hide buyers size lingo. It is there way of referring to really large beaver pelts commanding premium prices.

The artist use oil based paints, and on the leather side paint some beautiful scenes. They paint right over the holes in the hide leaving the holes. Some of these are super good! I watched these sell on an auction and a few went for several thousand dollars. Here's your change to try your hand at this!

Hide Pieces

Back side of Hides
These pieces of tanned hides can be re-soaked in plain water and softened and stretched over objects and left to dry. The wet pieces can even be sewn up and used just like you would a piece of cloth in making various articles. It is amazing to me to hear from some of you and what you are doing with these pieces.

There are those making artists paint brushes out of them, some are covering small plant pots, covering coffee cups making pencil holders. They are great for fly tying and making fishing lures. The list goes on and on, you can use these pieces to the full extent of your artistic abilities and imagination. Others are buying them for show and tell, some for class room instruction.

I wanted to show you what the back side of these tanned hides look like. You can see this in the picture I have placed just above.. I have also measured the hides so that you could get an idea of the size. The measurement I have given is mostly the inside blocky area of the hide and does not include any lengthy ends sticking out. I guarantee that the pieces are larger than the measurements I have given here on all the hide pieces.

Some of the hides are very, very difficult to get or find. Many pieces are absolutely one of a kind you won't find anywhere else.

All of the hides below have been fully tanned, tumbled, and dryed. You can re-soak them in water for a couple of hours and then sew up to make dozens of things out of them. Please have fun with these. All of the hides below are NON returnable. It is simply too much work to put them on this web site, take them off and then have to put them on again. So please don't ask to return these hide pieces. Thank You and have fun making things.

Lots of teachers buy these hide pieces to for show and Feel for their students


Many of you have wrote me telling me about how you are sewing the hides and that it is very difficult for you to push the needle through those thicker hides after they have been wetted and relaxed. This is because you are using a regular Round Head sewing needle, or even a needle made for sewing up shoes in a shoe shop. These will NOT work and yes you will have a difficult time sewing. These are not the kind of needles we use. We use upholstery thread and a special three edged needle that goes through even the thickest wet hide like a breeze. You won't have any problems sewing up the pieces with one of these needles. Because some of you want one of these needles I have made a link here for you to buy one because these needles aren't available in stores. I just want to make your life more fun!

Please note: Most of these pieces are being sold for far less than my orignal tanning costs. The tannery now charges $30.00 to $75.00 per square foot to tan hides plus shipping to and from the tannery, and then there is the cost of buying the hides, salting, fleshing, drying, packing ..............
