Not nearly as cool as old boombox guy.
Yep, dude is always at Loveland rocking that shit. Always strikes me as trying way too hard. To be honest, I've never actually seen him on the hill, only at the bar.

I have my paint ready to throw if I ever see you wearing that.

Real fur is NOT cool.

Peace and love man.

Get some sheep or rabbit fur (here you'd get them at handicrafts shops). Warm and soft and not loaded with remorse.

My $.02, go for the faux fur. I agree that animal fur is pretty lame. Then again I love things like leather gloves for snowboarding. Somehow though I don't think that portion of the industry operates like the fur guys do.

I am not so much about the murder part. I eat tasty animals all the time. It is the unusual cruelty that bothers me. Shitty life and then a shitty death. That is just a shitty thing to do to any living being.

If any of you eat meat please don't judge, the way in which meat is manufactured far outweighs the hunting of animals for fur in terms of animal cruelty. And throwing paint on someone is a very ignorant thing to do if your serious. Like seriously, I disagree with you so I'm going to ruin a coonskin cap and all your other gear too? Pretty much goes against everything your trying to accomplish. I have been looking at local hunters and faux fur as well so I'm trying to not be a complete animal hater

This is the way to go. Leave the tail and head on for effect as well.

Yeah I don't have my hunting license so I was looking at some small hunters websites that sell the tails and pelts

I do not eat nor wear animals (all of my riding gear -horse and snow- is synthetic). Both are cruel and unnecessary imo. I think what killclimbz might be referring to is the trapping, the snares, etc for animals' fur. Like factory farming, lots of suffering there.

I'd still not throw paint at you if I saw you wearing that as a fashion statement on the hill, as I respect you as a human just as I respect an animal to the point of not consuming them. If anything, I'd wonder why you wouldn't consider another way. Hence why I suggested the faux fur option.

Faux will wear better against the elements anyway; won't stink upon getting wet and will likely dry faster. Plus, you'll have more options in color, pattern, etc. It'll be far more available than animal fur and an easy option. Probably easier to work with (affixing to your gear) as well.

Animals are meant to be eaten and worn. So do what you want with them and if someone threatens to throw paint on you fuck them in the ass with a 12 gauge shotgun.

If you want to get fur on the cheap find a animal shelter that euthanizes and ask them for some dog/cat pelts. Then you can ride around with a pussy pelt on your head and claim it's a giant pussy crown!
