So where does a guy buy a good bone comb? Rite Aid didn't have them (but barber scissors were 1/2 price, so I bought a pair for the sport of it). My local Ultra didn't have a bone comb, either. I was the only guy there, except one of the people with lots of make up might have been a guy with some gender identity issues. So then I went a few doors down to Bath and Body Works -- they didn't have bone combs, either. I am not exactly sure what a cheap French whore smells like, at least not those of the modern era, but I bet she probably buys whatever she smells like at Bath and Body Works. So then I called Streamer but he didn't answer his phone. I poked around on that internet thing but wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for. Any suggestions?

Okay I'll be the dummy. What's a 'Bone Comb' for? (On the fly bench :) )

Static-free comb for getting the fuzz out of deer and other types of hair. Some people use them on their own hair, too.

Okay :)

Here's some stuff from the net:

Rub a dryer sheet on your hairbrush and then brush your hair. Dryer sheets are formulated to discourage static electricity production in the dryer. You can also rub the dryer sheet directly on your hair to encourage the hair to lie flat against your head.


I have had every problem with deer hair going except static. Now you've got me wanting to go spin some to see what happens :? ;)

Aaron.....I'm pretty sure yer buddy Chris Helm has them. You might also try Sally Beauty Supply, or any barber supply house in Charlotte. I think the Bookmailer (the old Gary LaFontaine site) sells them. And I also think that Al & Gretchen Beatty's site sells them too.

When you comb out the underfur on deer hair (Belly Hair, Blake), a plastic comb sometimes creates static, which can cause hair to cling to the stacker, or your fingers or the comb or whatever. A comb made from bone won't do that.
I got an extra one somewhere if you can't find one around Charlotte.

Yer Pal,
Streamer

Aaron, a real man would shoot a squirrel, skin it, remove all the entrails and then use the rib cage for a bone comb. That would sound much better than going to Sally's Beauty Supply :D :D

The back yard squirrels have turned shy. However, the neighbor's front yard squirrels remain brave. There are as many as six. Might need to get out there early one morning. I will save you some ribs.
