Don't they ever worry about fleas and ticks from the freshly killed animal pelts?

Ticks are an occasional problem--though not this late in the year; they’re all gone by the time it starts getting cold--but they’re up way too high to have to worry about fleas. The only fleas up here are the “snow fleas” (Hypogastrura nivicola, actually a species of springtail that eat rotting leaves, etc, and not true fleas) that you sometimes see where elk and deer have walked, in the winter, and they don’t bite.

Liz needs to take real good care of his nasty scratches...if he lets her.
Maybe he'll make little Snorri a necklace of claws like his.

How do they get the stink out of the hide?

The tanning process--braining, scraping and especially smoking--will get most of that wolverine smell out.

Yep, a necklace of claws, or perhaps just a single claw, until the little guy’s old enough to earn more for himself, ought to be a good thing for the baby. Even if she turns out to be a girl. :)
