Woodchuck & Textile Pouch with Powder Horn by Tom Landefeld, For Daniel Boling

Originally intended as a prize for the Shandaken Primitive Biathlon, I ultimately provided another, finer pouch to the biathlon committee and opted to pair Pouch #143 with a horn provided to me by Daniel Boling, a member of the Honorary Company of Horners.  The powder horn was made by Tom Landefeld, who also made the cane powder measure.  An antler button was added to the strap.
