The "Bag of Feathers" reminds me of a funny story. One of my nieces married a guy that boasted of being a mighty hunter and one year he was letting everyone know he was going on a big elk hunt. I wrote and asked him to send me some elk hair if he got one. He did get an elk that year and afterwords I got a shoe box sized package from him. I opened it up expecting a lifetime supply of elk hair and to my surprise I found an entire box full of elk hair that had been trimmed off of the hide!
