Moose and Deer Leather

Our leather is from the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal in Canada. Each year during hunting season we recuperate hides from hunters who are feeding their families, but don’t need the hides. We gather them, process them and have them tanned at a local tannery (not brained tanned) It is in our Native tradition to waste as little as possible. Each White Tail Deer is approximately 10 square feet and each Moose is 8 square feet as our moose pieces are 1/4 of a moose. Hunters in our region always quarter their moose to get them out of the forest.

    “Deer Tanned” Cow

    150$ Canadian

    “Deer Tanned” Cow

    We went looking for an alternative to Deer Leather and came up with “deer tanned” cow. We had our tannery use the exact same process they use to create that wonderful soft deer leather feel on cow hide. SO these pieces, available in GOLD and are the same thickness (2 1/2 ounce), texture, colour and feel as deer leather. Extremely soft and wonderful to work with. The hides are PERFECT (no awkward bullet holes lol) the only problem is that they are not deer, they are cow. Pieces are 22 sq ft.

    Gold Moose Leather

    This is wild Moose from the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal. We gather them from hunters and have them commercially tanned.

(see our leather bags for examples) Each piece is approximately 7 square feet (the tannery measures them). Please note that there may be a bullet hole although we will select the very best piece possible.

    Moose Raw Hide – Hand drum

    95$ Canadian

    Moose Raw Hide – Hand drum

    This is wild Moose Raw Hide from the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal. Rawhide is used to make Powwow Drums and Rattles. Raw hide is not leather….it has not been tanned….The process of creating rawhide involves removing the hair and thats it!! When soaked in water overnight it will become soft (like skin) and then when stretched over a drum and dried the skin becomes hard and sings…..Moose hide for hand drums must be thinner than those used for powwow drums. We will select a nice hide and that will make an amazing hand drum. We recommend one 16″ to 18″ drum per piece.

    Hole Punch

    Hole Punch

    We certify this Amazing Hole Punch!! As Drum makers we punch A LOT OF HOLES, in fact, Natives Punch A LOT OF HOLES!!
    For years we were using those cheap commonly available punches but our arms were falling off. Those old punches require an impossible amount of physical force didn’t even cut a clean hole. Finally after buying every brand of punch available we discovered the wonderful Sprenger Hole Punch. This German made hole punch has a lever or ratchet action and requires 70% less physical force to cut holes. Cutting holes even through even the thickest of moose leather or raw hide is a breeze. Effortless!! You will be astonished!! The punch features 6 different sizes of holes. The only problem was that it wasn’t available in Canada….arg…so after a year of wheeling and dealing we are happy to announce that we are the first distributors of the Sprenger Hole Punch in canada…. The punch is not cheap, but at $80 this might be the very last hole punch you ever buy.
