Is it just me or is that hard to stare at?

Just curious, what do they do with the pelts?

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

I think most get sold for wall hangers. I sell quite a few for taxidermy. I have been told of a number in museums. University of North Carolina just purchased two for their collection. I was told one ended up in a museum of natural history in Belgium.
If you have seen Karen's vest you can see they have potential for garments but the scant number of them being sold are a problem for that. Wish there was more of a market for them in the garment industry.
