Rugs Made From Wild Animal Hides
Rugs By Nancy has been making commercial quality rugs from animal hides since 1995 in Sheridan, Mich. The company has made rugs for people from around the world out of hides from antelope to zebras, and just about everything in between, including bears, wolves, coyotes, wolverines, mountain lions and tigers.
If hunters havenít taken trips or safaris of their own yet want a wild animal rug, her website lists more than 20 pre-made rugs for sale. A grizzly bear rug measures 82 in. tip to tip and 92 in. across the front feet. Claws are up to 3 1/2 in. long and the price is $3,250. A mountain lion with thick fur and excellent color measure 85 in. nose to tip and sells for $1,775. Alaskan Lynx, Bobcat, Black Bear and Alaska Wolf rugs are priced from $950 to $2,250.
The Rugs By Nancy website also has excellent instructions and a video on how to field dress a bear for making the hide into a rug. The company has produced professionally tanned and machine-sewn rugs for nearly 30 years and has a large selection of backings and embroidery along with D rings for hanging.
