Where to Farm Extraordinary Hides
Extraordinary hides drop from beasts, level 55 to 65+ in Moria, Lothlorien and Mirkwood. Because of the large level range and the high population of players at these levels, extraordinary hides can be pretty economical on the Auction House. With its many zones and instances, Moria offers several opportunities for farming extraordinary hides. Although you can't control the mobs you get while running an Iron Garrison Crafting Instance, when you get cave claws, you'll get extraordinary hides. This can be a boon if you are collecting scholar materials, wood or ore as well. Second Hall (8.6S, 103.2W) in Nud Melek also has a good concentration of level 57-58 cave claws and dragonets (with some orcs and gobins mixed in), but is a bit of a trek from 21st Hall. The best place to farm extraordinary hides is the Golden Wood area of Lothlorien. You'll need Acquaintance standing with the Galadhrim to enter. It is packed with level 58-60 beasts and well equipped with vendors, mailboxes and stable masters in several locations. If you have Friend standing with the Galadhrim, you can use the bank, auction house and crafting facilities in Caras Galadhon. It's really hard to go wrong here - just don't kill the protected beasts if you care about your Galadhrim rep. Bonus: Many rare mobs that drop mithril flakes in the area.
In the Mirkeaves area of Mirkwood, Fallug (16.7S, 61.8W) has great density of level 61 boars as long as you don't have competition from questers. The surrounding area has good density of level 61 wargs if you run short of spawns. Vendors, mailbox and stable master are nearby in Echad Sirion (15.3S, 61.2W). If you are running the daily repeatables, killing level 65 wargs in Naur-hoit (19.1S, 47.9W) advances a quest from Mithechad (17.6S, 48.2W) while you farm hides. Ok, not the low-end of the tier, but those wargs deserve to die!

Where to Farm Large Hides
Dunland / Bear den on Road out of Galtrev / Outside bridge into Trum Dreng. Cows in Dunland, if you are level 75ish however I Highly recommend goats in the Great River just NW of Stangard, there are plenty there they have less morale then cows in Dunland and they don't stun as much, also they are level 75 so you have a chance at a lootbox droping for you while you farm.
Dance as if no one is watching. Sing as if no one is listening. Love as if you've never been hurt.
