BRAIN TANNED ELK

Everything that was said above about the deer applies to the elk. These hides range from 16 to 35 sq. ft., with average sizes being between 21 and 25 ft. I tan only cow elk, they are thinner and softer then the bulls.

Price: approx. $12.00 per sq. ft. depending on quality
Average cost between $200 and $350
(smoking included)


BUFFALO RAWHIDE

White rawhide hand-scraped, made with no chemicals. After scraping, these hides are tanned one time, making them white throughout and more pliable. These hides are from bulls and are large enough for a pair of boxes or large envelopes.

Priced at $275


BUFFALO RAWHIDE WITH THE EPIDERMIS

Until recently this was impossible to get, but now I've figured out how to burn the hair off leaving the dark epidermal layer untouched. Perfect for reproducing those older incised parfieches.
Another use for this is cutting into strips for an authentic style rope. This will also make a strong trap sack when sewed with a thong or heavy sinew. In the Fort Hall ledgers, "parfleche" (an old term for rawhide) was sold specifically for trap sacks.

Priced at $350


CATTLE RAWHIDE

Treated the same as above, the hair is scraped off, and tanned one time to insure whiteness and pliability. Many of the painted rawhide articles in our museums are made of cattle.

Priced at $175
