Title: NAFA Fur Handling Recommendations
Post by: bearpaw on February 17, 2014, 12:31:37 AM
Hope this helps out a few of the newer trappers, if something other than NAFA fur handling recommendations are better for the northwest maybe Humptulips can make a recommendation to help.

Those are good. We include a FHA fur handling manual in with the Trapper Ed manual when you take the class and it is pretty much the same. Either one is good to have.

I also have a set of patterns from Nafa that you can trace for each stretcher. If someone wants to borrow them let me know.
