NAFA Fur Handling Recommendations
« 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.

NAFA Wild Fur Pelt Handling Manual:

Fur Sizing Chart:

How to build stretcher boards.

Measurements for various pine fur stretching boards:
Americans are systematically advocating, legislating, and voting away each others rights. Support all user groups & quit losing opportunity! Guided Hunts, Unguided, & Drop Camps in Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wash. Hunts with tags available (no draw) for spring bear, fall bear, buffalo, cougar, elk, mule deer, turkey, whitetail, wolf! DIY Hunting Maps are also offered.

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.
