Coonskin Cap

The coonskin cap was originally worn by native Americans but were adopted by some European colonists as hunting hats 

The hat is associated mainly due to film and folklore with Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, although according to Wikipedia the font of all knowledge Daniel Boone never wore a coonskin hat.

A real coonskin hat is made from the whole skin from raccoon, tail and all stretched over the head.

This reproduction was a gift from my mother when she visited Texas this Autumn, the label says Dan'l Boone Coonskin cap.

Why am I wearing fur inside, its too warm

I surrender

I need a bigger beard
