Iíve made some for myself. Itís not that difficult, takes about three evenings and 6 beers total. Mine arenít fancy but they sure are warm.

Look up ďchopper mittsĒ if you want a pattern.

I've made my own, many years ago. Moose Hide, and artificial fur (because that was all I had). I wanted elbow length, and loose-fitting so that I could throw them off at a second's notice to grab the rifle. I've also used them snow shovelling and snow blowing. They have worked like a hot-damn for over 40 years, but the fur is getting a little matted now.


Send me a PM and we'll talk.
