The timing on this is uncanny. I just got a lead on a paid internship in Alaska. Tagging waterfowl. One of the requirements is "must be familiar with firearms". Seems this outfit issues "bear protection". I want a bear skin coat so bad.

Did you see that episode of dirty jobs in which they tagged geese or something in Alaska? I wouldn't take good shoes.

The job is over the summer, so I've got time and I'm thinking about getting my mom to outfit me with a new pair of deer hide moccasins. Took me 5 years to wear out the last pair. I'm thinking of asking her if she can do a double layer with the fur in between.
