Wanted: Hunting Beard Responses (4)

When I went to the barber today. I mentioned someone wanted to use my beard hair for a hunting beard. He said he used to make wigs. Anyway he shortened my beard and put all the hair in a napkin. My beard hasn't been this short in years.
I'll hang onto it for a few days. Let me know what you want to do.

As you can see, the beard is now short. About 1/2 to 3/4 inch long now.

Where do I go from here?

Here is the latest e-mail from my bearded friend Bryan.

Give me a call so we can meet. It will be much easier to trim my beard for someone I have met. I am sure we can come to some kind of agreement. It is really not about the money, though it helps. I can only imagine the grief you get. It would be quite the picture to see their faces this year after your lady friend pulls off this fantastically unbelievable feat!
Yes, I believe a set payment is agreeable. I would also like to see a picture of it when you go to hunting camp.

The question is where do I go from here?
Give me some guidance - post a comment on the blog or facebook.
The best idea may just get a giant bag of Bryan's whiskers!
Don't make that face ... secretly you know you want it.

The picture of the beard comes from this site
This guy trimmed off 5 different beards from 3 decades and for some reason saved them in ziploc bags. He also has a pretty sweet pair of debeardification pics. Check it out!

Wanted: Hunting Beard Responses (3)

I am not ignoring you. Presently, I have been kind of busy. What is your deadline for sending the beard to the girl in CA? Are we talking the Nov gun hunt? I am already hunting since it is bow season. Have you got a phone number I can call you at?
Yes - Gun Hunt. She kind of owes me a favor so I think she will be able to craft it in under a week.
Did you get anything with bow?
Nothing yet. I have only gotten out twice so far. The plus is the cool weather we are getting. The deer are more active when its cold. The good thing is bow season is about 4 months long. Setting out the game camera today which a buddy is letting me use. I would like to meet you before we close the deal.
I agree we should meet! Maybe we should discuss price first to make sure we are on the same page. I was initially going to pay per strand but your beard is very thick and manly. Would you accept a flat rate payment? I have been saving all summer long for this and have a fat stack of cash set aside for your chin curtain. Out of curiosity what are you willing to part with it for??

I cut my beard down every couple of months. It is usually 3-6 inches long. I cut it down to about 1 inch long. Would that be enough hair for your friend to work with?
Oh my god Bryan - that is one of the most beautiful beards I have ever seen in my life! The color is perfect, my face is going to be so warm this hunting season!

It will be more than enough for my friend to work with.
When do you plan on trimming that facial masterpiece?

No response from Bryan yet ... fingers crossed!
edit: I hadn't heard from Bryan in 5 days but not 2 minutes after I posted this he responded. Stay tuned kids ... the story continues.
