Cased, fur out.

It is also acceptable to do badgers open, sort of like a beaver but more squarish. In my opinion, in you have a flatter type badger or a hair badger - they look better if done open rather than cased.

Buzzy,

The fur on this hat looks good, the guy looks Canadian though:

There is a forum member from Canada that has a picture of a gorgeous fur out badger - can't think of his name right now. I will see if I happen to have a copy of that picture in my files.

Yes, I remember. I'm sure you will never let me forget.

Your first picture is very deceiving. Based on that picture and the position of your hand in the fur - that is NOT a badger that sells for 140.00 at NAFA. MOST badgers that bring that kind of money have enough fur to completely cover your hand and then some.

Badgers turn like a cardboard box,even after only 6 hours drying time.
