Southern Mountain Hunting Horn by Ron Vail

This hunting horn is very similar to the original featured on page 187 of "Sketches of Hunting Pouches - Powder Horns - and Accoutrements of Southern Appalachia" by Jim Webb. Hunting horns/blowing horns/cow horn trumpets are used to call the dogs while on the hunt - call the other hunters back together - sound alarms, etc. This horn, as is the original, is 14" long from the deer antler mouth piece to the base of the horn.
