I'm not trying to offend anyone here as it is apparent most people prefer felt...I just can't describe it. when I think of felt, I think of first grade art projects and furniture movers. I don't like the feel or the look. I wonder if I can just get a nice stretched brown cow hide
You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?
Check out Jordan's Bear Den. I had them rug my 250# archery sow last year. They had, I'm guessing 12 or more colors to choose from. I chose black and sage green. The felt is only around the edge, the actual back is a canvas type material. I was very happy with how it turned out.
