Got my PA elk hide back from the taxidermist

It is 9 feet long the exact legnth of my reclining sofa, my setter doesn't know what to think about it, she has not curled up on the sofa since I hung the hide over the back.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

It is not felt, it is a more durable material, pluss they put a finish roll along the edges. They also sewed small rings on it so it can be hung on the wall. I don't have a wall I could do it on except my bedroom. All the other wall space is taken and I would have to take doesn't my paintings and photos on my bedroom wall. It is a nice touch though, give me options.

WW, is it fairly pliable? I'm waiting on a bear hide and I'm hoping it comes out fairly soft.

Yes it is, I brought it home folded. It drapes easily over the sofa back.
