I am hoping to start this up: a go-to place for beginners, or people who have been gifted with, or inheritors of hides that they have no idea what to do with.

I was given a wolf hide a year and a half ago, and its been sitting in a box pretty much ever since. The wife at the time had qualms about mounting it or displaying it in our home, and I more appreciative of function that form - plus, why would I want to mount or hang something I didn't earn?

So, what can I do with this hide? Sell it? Make it into something useful? If so, like what? I think I'm too big for a coat...

Thoughts? Ideas? Instructions?
