Finished this shooting bag last night

Recommended Posts

This is a shooting bag/purse I finished last night. I'm donating it to the United Bowhunters of Missouri Festival live auction held this coming Saturday, February 9th. The body of the bag is elk hide and the trim is deer hide. The dark brown bling is elephant ear and the scaly stuff is ostrich leg skin. I carved the D rings and hooks from moose antler and the buttons from deer antler. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. The bag has a large main compartment and a patch pocket on the inside. It has a gusset pocket on the front and a patch pocket on the back.The strap is adjustable. Hopefully, it will make the club a little money.

You just brought hand made to the next level.

Carved moose horn D rings?

I wouldn't have thought of doing that in a million years.

Beautiful piece, well done.

Amazing attention to detail! 

I can't imagine how many hours this bag took!

Very creative also, your design is over the top!

I love this bag. I bet it will make the club some money and the new owner extremely happy. The attention to detail and the hand made customizations are really nice additions.

Thanks, all! The bag went to a good home Saturday night. I saw the guy who bought it the next morning and his girlfriend said he fell asleep with the bag on his chest like he wanted to be buried with it. I thought that was pretty funny!
