I didn’t do much
field work this winter, but when I was up north I purchased some northern
people first move indoors, they move into white trash houses.This is a muskox hide, by the way.
And this is a wolverine. Pretty spectacular
Wolverine paws are
Look away! I’m
I was hoping to get
the wolverine mounted, but he’s pretty old and slightly balding. It was really hard to see this when the wolverine was a frozen block still in the trap, but pretty clear once skinned out. You can see this a bit in the second pic with
Otis. I was told this would look ridiculous when mounted so he's now a wall hanging. Maybe next year for the mount (I keep
reminding Andrea that one can never have too many wolverines).
We’re thinking of
what to do with the muskox - perhaps round off the hide and put a backing on to
make a couch blanket.The problem is
that while the qiviut is insanely soft, the guard hair is pretty long and flowy
and makes it feel like you’re snuggling up to a full head of someone else’s hair.Which is weird and not particularly cozy.
