Jeremy,
Tried to make a coon skin cap once. Fell apart after the first year. I'd say leave it to the pros. Had one made apprx 5 years ago and still doing great! I wear it all winter. Fritz Henke is who made mine. You can call him at 810-635-9669. Take apprx. 2 med to large coon. It cost around $80. Well worth it!

IT TAKES 1 MED. TO LARGE SKIN TO MAKE A HAT. The price of the hat if the skin is tanned runs from $10 to $20 to make. We have been making hats for over 25 years. We line the hats with a quilted linning.
