wooden hoops hard to find

Wooden beaver hoops are not comercially produced any more. You can make your own out of soft wood (birch or willow). Soak them in water until nice and soft and bend to shape, wait until totally dry to lace pelt on hoop with rawhide. Check an issue of The Trapper and Preditor Caller for commercially produced wire forms. Krause Publications publishes it, their web site is www.krause.com/outdoors, you also might try www.collectit.net for wooden beaver hoops.

I'll take a look this weekend in some of my old trapping magazines this weekend, I know I've seen an article on making and using wooden hoops.
