Turning Deer Hides Into Buckskin

Posted: 10 Aug 2011 10:52 AM PDT

The skin and fur of an animal is referred to as the hide so deer hides are the skin and fur of any type of deer. North American deer include whitetail deer, reindeer, elk and moose. Deer hide is also the name given to the skin and fur after it has been removed from a deceased member of the deer family. Animal hides have been processed into leather and used by humans since time immemorial. Over the centuries, humans learned to convert the hides of domestic animals like sheep, goats, cattle and hogs as well as the hides of wild animals into durable leather which can be used for many purposes. Leathers are named for the original animal. For example, cowhide and calfskin originate from cattle. Male deer are called bucks; all leather from deer hides is called buckskin.

Deer hides are often preserved through taxidermy. Deer hide is the term used to describe the skin and fur of deer. When a deer is harvested through hunting or on a deer farm, it is skinned to expose the edible meat, just like cattle are skinned when they are processed for meat. What remains after skinning is a deer hide or a cattle hide respectively. Taxidermy is the process of preserving either the entire hide or a portion of it as a replica of the original animal. Most often, only the head, neck and shoulders of a deer are preserved through taxidermy.
