Interesting, we might just take them for granted.But a roo skin is still a bucket list item for some (me).
The skins are sometimes process ed/tanned commercially for manufacture. Maybe buy yourself a set of RM Williams boots.
I think you can buy tagged skins at international airports on exiting Australia.
An international hunter might have a little more trouble as they are only harvested commercially.
People take them without permit all the time but you need a tag to posess/export.
Blackfellas can take them as traditional Tucker but the skins etc might come into a grey area if it was in question.
Taxidermist require a permit if you try stuff any native.
A freind in the meat processing business can't even break even on transporting skins at present so they are discarded.
It's the exotic animal Cool Factor.@CBH
There's something a bout a bear skin rug or bed cover that a roo skin can't do.
As Hunters there are different things that appeal. DG also fascinate s me.
