Banded Powder Horn by Ron Trammell

This a contemporary banded horn that is 13 1/2 ins. around the curve.The base plug is 2 3/8 ins and is cherry that has been hollowed out to make it lighter and hold more powder. The base strap button and the tip are whitetail antler and the tip is applied. It is the first in what I hope will be a series of four made in a similar style. The toughest part of doing a horn with this size band is finding a donor horn that is close enough in size and shape to heat and fit .
