I took a adult hide over today and was giving $4.00 Got me thinking I used to get $5 bucks when I started hunting 30 years ago.

Just wonder what others are getting.

of course where not going to get rich on deer hides , But I just like the idea of them going to a use .

I was told for a buck cape you could get $50-100 from a guy I work with.

Our local fleet farm buys them for $3. You used to be able to get a pair of leather gloves but I haven't seen anyone offering those for a while.

The guy buying our **** fur said hides both deer and beef prices are stable and shouldn't be affected by china prices. He said for 18 bucks we get gloves otherwise top dollar hides would be $7 last year my highest dollars hide was $5

He's full of crap. My buddy had a shoulder mount but deer's neck had a large hole in the fur so the Taxidermist sold him a new cape for $15.

My taxidermist will actually give me $25 credit for all euro mounts I get done for he can reuse the cape for others.

I haven't checked lately, but I saw a sign in front of a Taxidermy shop that said, Deer and Elk hides, for Leather Gloves...

This is accurate around here as well . Tanned capes bring good moneys . A XXL on e-bay , check them out if you need to know . I have heard of 29" - 30" capes green can bring a lot as well .
The fact were talking about hides here is different , needs another thread to get serious and not hyjack op .
