New CLA web page and auction information

The Contemporary Longrifle Association has updated their web page, and given the Contemporary Longrifle Foundation a spot to post up news and information there too. The CLF is the group that raised money for the CLA...its the board members of the CLF that edit and direct the production of the American Tradition magazine, made the House Brothers project happen, and who put on the annual live auction at the Lexington show in August.

I would encourage you to look at the new CLA web page:

Skink hide

I found a real commercial dealer that is actually selling hair on slink (or Slunk?) calf hide. What is that? Its actually the tanned hide of an unborn calf.The hide is tanned in Argentina, and unfortunately its not vegetable tanned. However, that said, it is exactly whats needed for so many hair on professionally made hunting bags. The hair is like velvet, and it really cant be replicated well. Even though "shaved" hides can be worked up and used, deer being used most often, once you see a real slunk hide you will realize the huge difference.
