How to Measure for and Install Your Butt Sleeve (butt wrap)

 

Beaver News #64 – December 4, 2017

You can now order a butt sleeve (butt wrap) from us, even if you are not able to bring your firearm to the shop.

When you order your butt sleeve you’ll provide us with three measurements. This is all we need to produce your butt sleeve and we will ship it to you. Once you receive the butt sleeve you can install it on your favorite firearm yourself.

As Mark says: if you can hunt and shoot a gun, I’m sure you can do it.

We created two videos, the first video explains how you get the three measurements that you need to send along with your order. To watch the video, click on the image below:

 

The second video explains how you install the butt sleeve once you receive it from us:

 

Should you have any troubles to install the sleeve, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Beaver News #58 – August 28, 2017

Here at Beaver Mountain Works we are getting ready for hunting season. We are starting to manufacture our quivers for archery and we thought, why not let you have a peek ūüôā

This particular one will go on the hip and you can see how Mark takes a simple piece of leather and transforms it into a tapered tubular.

To do that he first has to punch holes on all four sides (did you see our tutorial on how to punch holes? If not, you can watch it here).

After punching the holes he is ready to stitch it together. Best is to start at the narrow end and work your way to the wider end, it’s easier to get your hand in there this way.

Watch him stitch it together and hear all the priceless tips he gives you while he is doing it.

Tactical Knife customized

Beaver News #49 – March 27, 2017

Today we are talking about taking tactical gear, or your¬†personal hunting gear or fishing gear, and modifying what you’ve already purchased.¬†

There is a lot of good high-quality gear out there but it still may not suit your needs 100%. So one of our specialties is that we make modifications and upgrades to your gear, just like our motto says:

You dream it  Рwe make it!

In the video below we show you an example:
One of our clients bought a Blackhawk Knife that he wants to use in a tactical way. We went ahead and wrapped the handle with rawhide. We double wrapped it meaning, first we wrapped it one way and then we wrapped it a second time crisscrossed. We also died the raw hide a nice rich brown.

This is just one example of how we can customize or upgrade your existing gear. Come talk with us about your ideas, but first, click on the image below and watch the short video:

Beaver News #48 – February 27, 2017

Let’s talk tactical.

It’s snowing AGAIN here in the Lower Mainland, what unusual winter weather for us.

Mark used this opportunity to pull out his winter camouflage suit so he would blend in, especially since the dog is white as well ūüôā

Today he is talking about tactical dog collars and leashes.

  • Double 9-10oz Latigo Leather
  • 1-1/2″ wide
  • Molded sewn handle with reinforced copper rivets
  • Double 1-1/2″ D-rings one on either side
  • single roller buckle

 

The big handle is free floating and doesn’t collapse so you get your hand into it no problem, even if you are wearing gloves.¬†So if you are in a hurry to take control of your dog, you can grab the handle right away.

Watch the video below for more information and to see our cute 11-month-old Bianca.

Are you looking for a unique knife sheath?

Beaver News #30 – February 15, 2016

A knife sheath, pancake holster style

This particular knife sheath is really Mark’s favourite design for out in the bush or for horseback riding because it is slim-line, it sits flat right up against your body and does not protrude out.

You slide it on your belt like you would a pancake holster, the knife is easy to access, and the sheath can be worn on the left or right side of your body or even in the back.

The most important tool in the bush

Beaver News #29 – February 1, 2016

Axes, Hatchets and knives

Tools like axes, hatchets and knives take the most abuse and the last thing you want to do is have it either become dull or injure yourself or somebody in your party. That’s why you want a sheath or a cover for it. Unfortunately a lot of the sheaths and covers that come with your axe, hatchet or knife are very flimsy and are not made for the bush.

In this video Mark explains, how and why we here at Beaver Mountain Work build the sheaths for axes, hatchets, tomahawks and knives the way we do. They are all robust and high quality and they last as long as your tool will.
