Made this shooting bag for a friend

#1 Post by dhaverstick » Tue Jan 02, 2018 5:51 am

My good friend, John Pruitt, made a couple traditional smokepoles for my dad and me and asked me to make him a shooting bag as payment. I finally finished it yesterday. What is really special about this piece is that the body of the bag is made from the hide off the moose I killed with my longbow in 2015. The light brown dotted leather is ostrich hide and the colored leather is ostrich leg skin. The trim and fringe are deer hide and I carved the buttons out of the antlers off a buck I killed with my longbow. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. The bag has one external pocket and two internal pockets. I hope he likes it!

Darren, where do you get the exotic leathers?
I've looked on line and some of that stuff is insane for the pricing.
