    How do you make them? I have a hide that I would consider splitting if you can get a couple pairs out of one.

    It takes quite a bit from what I'm reading. I'm just going by the plans in the Alaskan's How To Handbook, its available from the Alaska Trappers Association website.

    Do you live on the road system? Does moose hide work?? I am a volunteer road kill response driver that picks up moose on the kenai peninnsula that are hit and get taken to charities in need. I'm sure most don't use the hides, just an idea. MSG me back If moose works and you happen to be on the KP.
