How many critters in your collection?

Recommended Posts

Ok Wood Badge'rs...how many critters do you have in your "collection" (we all know you can't pass up a new addition!!) and what is the most unusual?

 

I haven't really counted mine, but I think the most unusual would be the Beaver Bobblehead that I found recently at Outdoor World!!

I have 43 proud Beavers here with me. Interestingly, my latest was given to me Saturday at Outdoor Leader Training by another staff member. Its a bobblehead beaver that she got at Bass Pro.

I have NO IDEA how many bears and bear images I own.

 

You see, asides from being a Good Ole Bear from WE3-41-03, I'm also a Bear by virtue of my graduation from the University of California. So, I've been "collecting" bears and bear-like things for many years now.

I am not sure how many Beavers I have either but the strangest would be the Bobblehead one and the coolest would be the one that is scroll-sawed in a scene inside a wooden feather. I also love the giant two foot tall one with the baby that my youngest got me at a flea market because he knew Mom would love it.

I have two - a "Beanie Baby" from my wife, Cutest BobWhite, and a little one on a cord necklace from my son, the Philmont Staffer. He found it at the Cimmaron Art Gallery. They have a website - "cimmaron art gallery" - and they have all of the critters in all sorts of guises. And a gen-u-ine Beaver hat pin that I picked up at our scout shop. He went on the hat when I got my beads. I don't care if the little guy on the necklace is not official. He gets worn almost all the time and hide next to the beads.

 

Bass Pro Shop, huh? Hmmmmmmmmmm.

aardvark,

 

Is this the really nice dark brown beaver hand puppet that you can use your fingers in the arms to make it scratch itself???? I saw one of those earlier in the summer but haven't picked it up yet. I have the finger puppet version though! I do have the Beaver Crossing sign too...and the 2 Beanie Babies and also a Beaver in a can that our troop guide gave us. One of my patrol mates took the sole off an old pair of shoes and made us all a beaver tail and attached it to a nametag!

 

Last weekend at our Fall Camporee, the boys had set up an ax yard and had a log in it. They weren't really using it so I took all my critters and put them out on the log and I have a picture of a standing Beaver that I printed out with the words "Beavers RULE!!" on it and I tacked that to the can.

How about the set of bears from Jambo. I got them, kept one for myself and gave the others to guys on WB staff this yr. I also bought the one from NOAC last yr. Its good to be a bear!

I have 2 eagle stuffed animals - One small one I received as a gift from my troop guide, and one that is a little larger I found at Yellowstone National Park.

 

Incidentally, on my trip to Yellowstone this summer, I did get a picture of a bald eagle in its natural habitat. Wow! That was really cool!

 

Mostly, I have collected pictures and postcards of bald eagles. It's tough to find critters of eagles and the nice sculpted eagles are quite pricy. I have been tempted to drop $50 for a small eagle sculpture, not yet though.

 

I keep my eyes open for critters all the time but the few I have found are rare.

Jerry,

 

Congrats on finishing up your ticket!! I've been done since October but I haven't gotten my beads yet because my presenter has had to go out of town everytime we had a suitable time to do it..we're shooting now for the District dinner on Jan. 18th! All my patrol mates got theirs in Nov. so it's been hard for me to wait...

 

Which Beanie Baby did you get??...The laying one or the sitting one with the log?? I have them both.
