Mule deer tails are one of the few sources for long hollow hair. This makes the hair buoyant, making it a good choice for tying deep sea jigs.
Use the hair to hang out from tin cones for a very Eastern looking "fringe." You can dye them any color you wish with commerical fabric dyes found at most craft and grocery stores.
More examples of October Mule Deer Tails
These mule deer tails were harvested in October, so they aren't as full as tails taken later in winter. They have long hairs at the base and bottom of the tail, but the center hairs are shorter and more sparse. There is still plenty of long hair to tye many flies.
Small mule deer tails are 4-7" long and Medium tails are 8-12" long. The longer the tail is, the longer the individual hairs will be.
These tails are deboned, stretched, and dried.
