    Thought I would share this. My youngest got this cap from his uncle. Next thing I knew. He was scrounging up everything he could to go squirrel huntin. My boys never seem to fail at making me laugh. Some folks might not get the humor here. I feel sorry for those who dont. But for those old enough, I hope it will give you a chuckle. Yes he has his own Tennessee mountain rifle.

    Thanks, brought back memories of growing up in the 50's and watching Disney's Davy Crockett. Kids were wearing coon skin caps to school. Only question I have is, How does Santa reach those stockings hung way up there?

    I had one of those coon skin caps when I was really young back in the '50s. Fun memory. Never made a real coon skin hat but I did make an impressive coyote hat when I lived in WY.

    I told him he better be willing to eat it if he shoots it. Except for yotes,varmits,and cats. That kid would try eating anything though.

    He needs a holster for that revolver lol.

    I had a fake coon hat - everyone that grew up with Davy Crockett did I think.

    Good times;)

    My wife grew up in Ohio on a 200 acre farm.
    Her dad would go racoon hunting (and still does) he would sell the coon pelts and that's how they afforded xmas gifts.

    Maybe that's where your hats came from?

    I had one too, when I was but a lad. As I recall, the tail snapped on to the hat part.

    I not only have the coonskin hat I had as a kid but I have a buckskin fringed jacket too. I passed it down to my son and now I'm waiting to see it on a grandson some day. My brother and I were huge Davy Crockett fans.
