2013 CLA Silent Auction Item: Joe Mills Hunting Pouch with Antique Powder Horn

This piece by Joe Mills is just one of the items to be offered at the CLA meeting in August.  The Silent Auction always has a great variety of items donated by the membership. 

The hunting bag is one of Joe’s latest.  It is all hand sewn as are all of his bags and has a great rustic look about it.  Every piece of this fine outfit is aged to perfection.  The bag is constructed from bark tan.  A handmade measure and vent pick are attached to the strap.  A brass buckle allows for strap adjustment.  The old and restored horn is attached directly to the bag straps.  A broken tip on the horn has been artfully repaired by Jeff Bottiger.  

Don’t miss out on all the great silent auction items at this years show.  If you have an item you would like to donate, just bring it along with you.
