Elk hair or deer hair
Gstebler posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchI have a complete elk hide and deer hide. I typically cut sections of deer hide and cure with borax. I now have elk to use as well. Can elk and deer be used interchangeably? I have two elk manes too. The hair is quite long and coarse. What applications could I use the elk main in? And will it take color like the deer hide. After I cure the deer hide I use koolaid to dye the hide. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
