Default My latest addition to my collection.



Started off like this.


Had to do a lot of scrapping.


And washing.


Tanning the hide.


On the rack to stretch it.


Now to let it sit.


Time to remove it from the rack


It'* huge. Makes the black bear look down right tiny.

I hate fur'*. Not because I'm into animal rights, I just think they're gross. I can appreciate the time you put into it though to make it right for you.

I have other furs as well. Would love to have a grizzly. All these furs are used in performances. It one of those things where fake looks wrong.

Nice looking fur you have there! I've driven thru a heard of Buffalo out in Custer State Park by Custer SD. They only move if they feel like it.

Still no set plan. Was talking to a friend this weekend. She said her son processes buffalo and was going to ask what they do with the hides. I might be getting a few more. With a bunch I do have a plan. A roof over the weapons booth at faire.
