    As a long time tanner, educator and author on subjects related to tanning and leather, I can say there were some things done very wrong here. The product was basically a poor quality rawhide, dyed on the outside. I have a lot of videos on my channel about how to do this process. The main mistake was not using even remotely enough tannin. This is the most common bad mistake made in vegetable tanning leather, so no negative judgement, most of us have done it as novices. I'm guessing that was either pine bark mulch or old bark off a dead tree. Neither likely contains enough tannin to do much. If using very rich, quality bark, that may have been enough, but probably not. If there is enough tannin and the hide is handled and stretched and stirred some, it can tan much faster. I don't want to type a how to do it here, but I have lots of vids on it. In fact, I just did one recently on this very mistake and how to avoid it. Feel free to contact me if you do something with leather again. I'd love to collaborate. Cool channel.

    the hide should have been brain tanned (using the brain from the deer), allowed to dry and stretched. Then worked to soften the now leather before being smoked with 'punky' wood to preserve it. What you have there, is buckskin. Which is why it is so hard and black. It is not leather.

    The deer will be used for food, not just the leather. When you hunt, you think the animals, and use all of that out of respect. I'm surprised that there's no recipe for the cocooned silkworms. There probably is, because they're a great source of protein, but no one seems to care about their those animals, because they're insects, not mammals. Odd, that, don't you think?

    animal lovers, this is actually good for the environment. people shoot coyotes left and right and this makes the deer population spin out of control.
    with limits this can help protect other wildlife.
