I made a new friend last year named Joe Hollingshad and found out that he was ate up with blackpowder hunting like I am. He invited me over to his place to hunt and we spent the weekend in our leathers and eventually both killed does with our smokepoles.


Over the course of the weekend, Joe mentioned that he had a bobcat hat that he loved but somehow it disappeared years ago. To thank him for his hospitality, I decided to have one made for him. I bought some nice hides from a guy and gave them to another friend of mine, Brian Peterson, to make the hat. Last night, Brian sent me these photos of the finished product. I am so tickled because I will get see Joe this weekend at a traditional archery event and be able to give him his present. I thought the hat turned out well.

Darren, how many cat pelts were used for this hat?

Thanks, Skychief

Skychief, I bought one premium pelt with claws and paws and bought two scrap pelts for filler. There was enough pelt material left over to make another hat if I were to buy another premium one.
