I finished this shooting bag last night for a friend of mine. He was adamant about me making the bag as plain as possible but I snuck in a little carp hide bling on the front and back flaps to cover up some stitching. He was quite pleased with the end product. Now he has to wait 9 long months to get the fowler he ordered to go with the bag.

The body and straps of the bag are made from bison hide and the saddle colored trim is elk hide. It has a small gusset pocket on the front, a small patch pocket on the inside of the main compartment, and a large gusset pocket on the back. I carved the D rings and hooks from moose antler and the buttons from deer antler. I then sewed it all up by hand using artificial sinew.

Looks good :cheers:

Where do you get your materials and how long does a project like that take?
fishshooter, I got the elk hide from Springfield Leather Company and I got the bison from The Hide House in Napa, CA. I can't remember where I bought the moose antler slices. I think it was online at Promise Land Tannery. The deer antler came from a buck I had killed. It took me around 3 weeks to make that bag working off and on.
