Hides can be looted from wild or domesticated animals upon death. The following animals have a chance to drop hides:
- Small Hides: Hare, Raccoon, Fox, Lamb
- Medium Hides: Wild Pig, Hyena, Wolf
- Large Hides: Bighorn Sheep
Of these wild animals, only the wild pig and sheep can be domesticated and used as a source of hide.

Players create leather from raw hides through the process of leather working using the barrel crafting mechanic. One small hide produces one piece of leather, one medium hide produces two pieces of leather and one large hide produces three pieces of leather.
