If anyone get's lucky, you can donate the deer hide to a company in Montgomery that will turn it into leather. Just dump the hide on their front steps either
- the same day of the kill
- salted (don't ask me how much - call them) as a preservative
- frozen (or salted and frozen)

They'll be very happy.

It's an awesome way to use one more part of the animal.

Good luck!
