First catch your bear.
Then kill it.
Skin the carcase, and then scrape off any scraps of meat or fat. You’ll find lots of fat, so you’ll have to scrape it again and again.
Rub the underside of the pelt all over with raw brains.
Allow it to get really smelly. This is important, because this is how you’ll know the skin is curing.
Scrape off any brains that haven’t soaked in.
Allowthe pelt to dry, keeping it moving all the time so that it dries supple.
Smoke the pelt over an open fire.
Now tie the pelt round you with strips of leather, and do a twirl.
There we are.
Majestic, or what?
