    Does anyone know who caries a good apron for fleshing deer and bear on a beam. I have been using the waterproof ones out of taxidermy supply catalogs and they don't even last a year.
    So my question is what do other people use and where do they get them.

    Thanks for the help

    Do a little looking at butcher shop aprons. I ordered one a while back that is very thick and works awesome. here is the link:

    I bought a apron from mac to use as a pattern only. I took a piece of roof rubber they use on a flat roof, (like an intertube) and cut it out the same.
    You get done hose it off, same apron for 10 years.

    We also make ours from rubber roofing , made 2 seven years ago from free scraps ... Used one of Kate's aprons for a pattern , added some brass grommets ... They really last ...

    I've gone through a few different ones and have settled on the black waterproof one from McKenzie. It is very durable, works well, inexpensive, and the snap closure on the side is easy for a fat dude like me to use. ;D For $15.00 try one, you'll be pleased.
