Finally, I have a pair of braintan moccs. These are made out of a elk hide that a friend has had laying around for years in a rawhide state with the hair on so the dermis beetles had fun reeking havoc, ruining about 1/5 of the hide. There would have been enough for both moccasins and leggings, but I must wait till next hunting season for some deer hides. They have not been smoked yet, one last step to make them trail worthy.
