bag project

got a good start on my hunting/shooting bag for the new rifle. i'm using 5-6 oz moose leather. I cut out the back/flap (1 piece) and the front. I am also putting a pocket on the front for my tool set to go into. sinew can be split for smaller dia strips. I have a few awls that were my grandfathers that I use, some needles and sinew. I also have a soft pine board that I work on to punch the holes. I will work on it as time allows and will follow up with more pictures.

picture that hangs over our fireplace, that speaks volumes to me.

Your post could not have come at a better time!

I just laid out a section of deer hide and cut up an old pair of bluejeans in preparation of making a couple possibles bags for my ML battery. Back of bags will be denim with about 2" fringe, the front panel and flaps will be deer hide.

Going to use the back pockets on the jeans as an interior storage pouches.

what are you plans for a belt / strap and how to make the attachments?

Any buckles or "D" rings?


Looks great!

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

2" wide shoulder strap, 1 piece no buckle. I usually sew them to the bag, this one I may use antler buttons instead.

I'll have to hook you up with the possum man. He makes bags out of elk hide and just about anything else primitive. He is really involved in the eastern rendezvous.

Laylow, I'd be interested in that gentleman as well, as I'm going elk hunting this fall for a cow elk and contemplating what to do with the hide if I do kill one.

my bags are pretty plain. with having several guns with their own accessories, I keep things pretty simple but functional.

everything for the bag is done and I am ready to get serious hunting woodchucks. items are: tin box with a smaller tin inside with lube, patches and balls. 8 shot loading block with mini starter. small leather bag with jag, cleaning patches and flints. original powder horn with deer antler 40 grain powder measure. I also carry a t-shirt rag in the bag for wiping out the flash pan when it gets nasty.
