The strap on this leather pouch also carries
the powder horn. This setup is suitable for a single
day's deer hunt.
With this pouch and the larger horn he is ready for a Rendezvous or Trail Walk.
The wooden powder flask was carved by a friend and is used with a squirrel rifle.
When I realized what a nice collection of powder horns he had stashed in the garage, I suggested that we display them in a prominent location inside the house.
After looking at them for a while, he became inspired to try his hand at scrimshaw.
A book, "Recreating the 18th Century Powder Horn" suggested some ideas for design and described the technique.
His first attempt turned out great!
This stunning horn was made by Ken "Dirty Hand" Falletti.
Rick chose the strap to go with the horn and stitched the leather tabs onto the ends.
