Have you ever dreamed of softening a bison hide WITH NO CHEMICALS and having your own beautiful bison robe?  In this class you will dress your own bison hide from start to finish!

Imagine snuggling with your cute and super sexy lover friend in luxurious comfort, wrapped in warm, woolly bison tickling each other and whispering soft sweet words in their ear.   When yall start giggling w/ one another…you will know the magic of the BISON :)

Display it proudly on the couch or as a bedcover. Or, take it with you into the wilderness for an authentic Stone Age bed. Or give it away to someone special or a complete stranger. 

The Process: With gratitude to the bison, you will learn: framing, “braining", softening, and smoking your hide (if you choose this step).  The entire process requires approximately 40-80 hours of work, with staff supporting you throughout your journey.  A natural hot springs is about eight miles away for relaxation, rejuvenation, and to watch the eagles dance above you.   

Class cost includes all materials, including a fleshed and salted bison hide for every student. Hides are primarily sourced from Montana bison ranches, and maybe a few wild hides also.

Facilities: Ample space is available for camping at River Camp. Bring your own tent or camper, food, and extra warm sleeping gear.  Well water, communal kitchen, pit toliet. 

River camp is drug and alcohol free campus.
