Deer hides

Postby wack » Thu Sep 22, 2011 5:15 pm

Hey gang, I used to take all of my deer hides to Berlin WI but that leather shop is now closed. The Oshkosh Fleet Farm gave me $3 credit last year, barely paid for the salt. I've got a buck that I skinned out today, where's the best place to take a hide?

Good idea. I have heard they need them to improve a mount or replace a damaged cape.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Fleet Farm will start taking them on OCT 22. $3 coupon, good on anything in the store except beer, smokes, and few other items. Can combine multiple coupons for one purchase. DONT bring the hides into the store - go to the gate shack or yard at most if not all stores.
