Moose Hide


My son should be able to shoot a cow moose this weekend. Just curious what to do with the hide. I don't think we want to get it tanned, especially since Rocky Mtn Tanners still owes me hide. Any suggestions?

I know you can trade green deer and elk hides for finished products like gloves with some companies. I'm not sure if anyone does that with moose hides.

I would not expect to get anything back from Rocky Mountain Tanners.


You might try Moscow Hide and Fur in Moscow, Idaho. 208-882-0601. They've always done a great job on my deer, elk, moose. I love hair-on hides.


Appreciate the suggestions. Still not sure what do with it. This was the 1st time I have encountered "Ground Enhancement". We thought it was a medium sized cow, not overly big until we walked up to it. I am still amazed at its size and maybe you can tell me different, but this animal had no smell to the meat. We were very pleased and anxious to try it once we get it back from the processer. Elk, deer, antelope and such always have their own special smell and this old gal had none.

One of the missing experiences in our current world is the amazing experience of walking into a shop/store that sold the smoked, brain tanned moose hide clothing and footwear made by the Native Americans, especially those from the northern latitudes. I remember it as a nearly spiritual experience.

One of many things I miss from a time all but gone from the world. Even the memories of it are now all but gone.
