RE: deer hide
That's so cool!

I really want to do what you're doing now mate.

The only knowledge I have is that of Ray Mears or Bear Grylls.

I know you need to make bracelet cuts around the ankles, another cut from the anus to the solerplexus, but the rest....not a clue mate.
Trial and Error

Give it a go, if it doesn't work keeping the hide, eat up, and find another one.

It is messy and all icky and like everything else the instruction sheets don't show the true story. But lie everything else practice makes perfect.
