If you don't want to look like a rookie at the next rendezvous or primitive hunt don't pass this up. This antelope leather possibles bag is entirely hand sewn with linen cord then given an aged patina to make it look like it's been around for ages. This labor intensive surface is achieved with layers of dyes and oil/ beeswax mixtures hand rubbed into the leather. What I use makes the leather water repellent and is good for the leather. I never use oven cleaner to achieve an old, worn look…

#81-Groundhog bag with antique horn
I made this hunting pouch from a local garden thief that I case-skinned and alum-tanned at home. There is a heart-shaped repair on the front where I got a little overzealous scraping the belly part of the hide. The horn is an antique, and Jim Webb may have made the stopper (he couldn't recall upon seeing it, but thought he very well may have). The cane measure was made by Art Riser. There is also a brass wire vent pick and an antique table knife with a bark-tanned sheath.
