Talk about getting more than you bargained for!!!  Was looking around the web for trim pieces of grizzly bear and found a place that does rugging of hides. The lady said she had a hide that a guy wanted redone but the hide was falling apart so he said keep it!! but I didn't want that much and she said well if you pay shipping I'll send you some in an envelope!! WELL!!! I received a box and she sent me the whole thing!!  I put 4 shades in gallon bags and the rest I had to use my Super Ziplock storage bags!!   Looking through finding the best pieces of hide to try and cut some zonker strips!!!  Really nice stuff!!

Just Fishing! All life is that to some extent. If we are not fishing for one thing it is another. But angling! That's just a bit different. In it we find peace and contentment and much with which to occupy our minds. May the balance of our fishing days be blessed with congenial comrades and "tight lines." Ray Bergman

Nice find, is the length and texture similar to black bear?

If I'm not mistaken, it's been a while since your last post, Fatman.  At least, I don't remember seeing your screen name pop up recently.

If I'm right ... Welcome back !!

 

Nice find on the fur(s) !!!
