Wapati Skin Small


We have multi species tanned skins with an excellent variety of hair colour. Species include red, fallow black and ginger, Wapiti slink skins, plus goat. Prices according to size. The Wapiti (Elk) is the largest of the New Zealand deer species. In New Zealand both Elk and Wapiti are farmed throughout the country, but tend to predominate closer to their traditional NZ home of Fiordland. Therefore the Southland and Otago regions tend to farm the greatest number of animals.
