I picked up my bear hide from Alpha Furs. They did a very nice job, very pleased
Problem is my dog is not a fan, we fleshed and processed in the garage and she would not go in there for at least a week.
Anyway, brought the box home and just kept it boxed outside and let her come and smell it, not a happy camper, plenty of barking then wanting to go back upstairs, did not even want to just take it out, trying to ease her into it. She has smelled and come into contact with live bears,,,,,
Its tough, she really is a super good pup (black lab) I think its great she does not like the smell of bears, she runs with my wife, its nice to know,,,,,,,,but how the heck am I going to be able to display the thing? At the moment I think she would come unglued if I just whip it out.
It's currently in my reloading room, I figure I'll let her keep smelling it from the door??
The wife is not a huge fan of it either, granted she does not mind eating them she just does not need a visual, need help, the dog and wife are ganging up on me
