I made this hunting pouch from a local garden thief that I case-skinned and alum-tanned at home. There is a heart-shaped repair on the front where I got a little overzealous scraping the belly part of the hide. The horn is an antique, and Jim Webb may have made the stopper (he couldn't recall upon seeing it, but thought he very well may have). The cane measure was made by Art Riser. There is also a brass wire vent pick and an antique table knife with a bark-tanned sheath.
This pouch is made from a coarse fabric that has been tin clothed and lined with a homespun pattern fabric. The flap and straps are made from barktanned deer hide. The powder horn was made by Ron Hess. Included is a cane measure made by Art Riser and a copper vent pick. Other materials include antique bone buttons and hemp cord.
I was honored this weekend when this pouch received a judges choice award at the 2015 Dixons Gunmakers Fair. The work submitted there for judging is always wonderful to see and the bar is always raised.
