    That's a common mix up, due to my sophisticated vehicle choice and dapper dress I'm the origin of many "pimp at large" calls.

    Saw this guy in Wal-Mart about a week ago. Actually, when I left he was ringing the bell for the salvation army kettle and it was cold out so I'd say he was properly dressed.

    I don't wear any but I like fur.
    You can never have enough beaver laying around.

    Well went to the hockey game tonight, wore my mink lined Bomber hat that is about 30 years old. Still looks very good and it is dang nice and warm. Have a set of beaver mittens I got as a present that I don't wear much, to dang hot! All in all when the temp is -18 and wind blowing I like fur!!!

    Hobby nice collection!

    It is in bad shape now but I have a old buffalo robe coat I got from a great uncle. It is not in great shape, but that thing is heavy and warm. He would put it on and walk into town in sub zero temps when they where snowed in pulling a sled with eggs and cream. They wrapped the eggs and cream in other furs to prevent freezing. Those old boys where plain tough!

    I picked up a big road kill otter in March last year. Called a game warden to get a CITES tag but since it was road kill I didn't get one.

    I gave it to a friend who planes to have mittens made out of it.

    I have thought about trapping enough beaver to make a bedspread... I think it would look good and be warm but would probably require 50 beaver?

    I have about 10 beaver in the freezer. Maybe I will have them tanned and have something made out of them. Would make more sense than selling them for $7.00 each, maybe less.
