These Mule Deer and Whitetail hides are collected every year in Western Montana, on Shoshone Nation territory, respectfully.
I glean hides that are discarded in the hunt, take them home to flesh, and preserve them with salt. Every one is processed with care and an honouring of the animal whose life provided the hide.
- A salted hide is preserved for up to two years. Keep cool and dry until you are ready to tan it.
- Hides range in size from 3-4 feet long and 2-3 feet wide. Each hide comes tightly folded and wrapped in a plastic bag and weighs approximately 3-5 lbs.
- If you’d like to choose Mule Deer or Whitetail, please indicate in the Notes section of your purchase
SHIPPING: Shipping is an additional cost and will be calculated once the package is sent. Because these bulky packages vary greatly in price from place to place, I have found there is no predictable metric to calculate shipping costs. Instead, I will notify you when your package has shipped and send an invoice reflecting the exact amount of shipping costs.
One hide = roughly $25-35CAD (price then lowers with multiples of hides). Two hides = roughly $35-45CAD.
10% of proceeds from salted hide sales will go to the Boa Ogoi Interpretive Centre, which exists “to educate and enlighten visitors about the history of the Northwestern Shoshone Band and restore natural resources.” For more information, visit https://boaogoi.org/
