I don't imagine it would be harder to use than elk hide, but I don't know how well it would wear. The little I have used deer hide the skins have used were on the thin side, great for garments and things like medicine bags. But for things like moccasins and mukluks the Elk hide is thicker and more durable, so that's what I had on hand. I like the look of Elk hide, but if you have deer hide, what's to lose in trying it? You can always do it again some time in the future if the deer hide wears out.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
