Our white tail deer rawhide comes in different grades.
The bleached rawhide is prepared in a light parchment color (i.e., like pale honey) using a hydrogen peroxide treatment.
You will be able to cut three 18-inch drum circles from one bleached Select rawhide. You will be able to cut two 18-inch drum circles from one bleached #1 rawhide. You will be able to cut one 18-inch drum circle from one bleached #2 rawhide. You will be able to cut one 10-inch drum circle from one bleached #3 rawhide. There may be holes and other defects for all grades but the main criteria for the grading is the size of the hide and the number of round drum pieces you can get from one hide. The select grade are the largest and the #3 are the smallest in size.
The rawhides range in size from 2.5 sq. ft. to 7.5 sq. ft. One select white tail deer rawhide measured 56" long, 28.5" wide across the top, 28" wide across the middle, 35" wide across the bottom, and weighed 1 kg.
Rawhide is also referred to as parchment or vellum.
