Consider giving fur-based gifts to help promote our craft. I gave my wife a set of arctic fox ear muffs for her birthday and she loves them. I bought the muffs (from Epler Fur)so I take no credit for the fur or craftsmanship, but they are beautiful to say the least.
I wear my fur hats all the time when cold enough to, and I gave the landowner's 2 grandkids a fox tail each, as a thank you. I'm not sure if he himself would wear a fur hat, but I may make him one next year if his daughter thinks he would. These folks have been GREAT to me.
I love fur it is why I started trapping. Last year I sent some of the nicest coons I have gotten tanned up to WolfWoman from Tman to be made into a hat. It is the best thing I own. I love it and everywhere I go with it on I get compliments
I've sent some tanned red fox to F&T and got a hat made with the tail on, looks great and is warm! Thinking of sending some beaver pelts to usafoxx on a Russian style hat. Anyone else have places they've gotten items made that they like?
