Follow-up on the Buff Leather post.  I’m hip-deep in a moosehide.  Fluffy.  Sure can see why it was the expensive option for buff coats:  the hide is MUCH stronger than cow, albeit thinner.  Couldn’t get all of it fleshed and membraned today, b/c of a problem that means it needs to soak so I can get it to lay out flat, but it should be able to be laid out tomorrow, and finished up next week.  Pictures soon (but I’ll only include one of the gross ones).

  3. Ah! We use “moose” to mean something else in our home. Looking forward to seeing what you can do with dead bovid flesh.
