Question capote question

Does anyone have any historical proof as to when the capote started to become fashionable in the fur trade? I was watching some footage from "Centennial" on the net and the have Robert Conrad wearing one in the late 1700's....didn't think that the capote showed up until later in the fur trade.
Thanks in advance.......

Mr. 16 gauge,

I believe the capote was made from a Hudson's Bay blanket used in fur trade with the Indians and trappers. Maybe a Google search on the Hudson Bay Company will reveal some details.

Here's a good read for Capote info:
*I started hunting when I was young. Yeah, I saw "BAMBI", but , I got over it.
** A hunter never apologizes to his prey; He just thanks it for the contest.
