This red deer leather is a low grade, however it does come at a great price. The flesh side (the suede side) is clean, however. The epidermis (skin side) will have some rough patches as well as some holes. If you are looking for practice leather, or can take advantage of the suede side, this is a deal for you. Like all of our deer leather, this #3 red deer is super soft to the touch. Average hide size is 10-12 square feet.
