    Default Head on Fur hat

    I am looking to get a full head fur hat made out of a bear that I got this year.
    I want to have the head done up similar to a rug, and sit on top the hat with the paws coming down around my shoulders.
    Does anyone know of someone who will make the hat part?
    Any information would be appreciated,
    Thanks

    Not sure where you're at but howling wolf furs in Kasilof does really nice work. I had her make a hat for me out of beaver and a silver fox that I got in Kodiak and I was more than happy with it

    Tony, did you tan your furs before handing it off, or did you deliver them to howling wolf raw? I just picked up my first beaver, and once I have a few I'd like to find someone to sew up a few hats for my boys.

    Yeah they were already tanned when I dropped them off. I have several things made by her and all of them are top notch. You won't be disappointed.

    My wife has done some beaver and sea otter hats for me, and one beautiful beaver,land otter and sea otter vest that I wear all the time. She's one heck of a skin sewer

    I can't be the only one that thinks there is a joke in there somewhere....

    Anyway, by "picked up" do you mean fresh from the pond or is it already tanned?

    Denali fur and leather in wasilla is top notch. Wayne does excellent work and is very affordable too.
