Bucktail is the tail from a white-tailed deer and can come in a number of lengths. Often, the medium length material is used for wings on Sierra streamer patterns such as Clouser Minnows. Hareline markets a Large Northern Bucktail that is 3-4 inches in length and dyed in a number of colors. The natural bucktail will be white with brown hair down the middle. The upper 2/3 of the tail is finer and will make better wings. As you use hair closer to the base, it will be thicker and will tend to flare and be brittle. See Color Chart.
