Hunting Pouch and Powder Horn by Billy Griner

This bag is a very early styled Southern bag of one piece construction.  It is made of calfskin and trimmed in pigskin.  The bag is about 7 X 8 1/2 inches and is unlined.  There is no internal pocket.  Attached to the bag is a very simple horn; of about 14 inches with a carved trumpeted spout and bee hive plug of ash wood.  The outfit has an accoutrement set consisting of a pan brush, vent pick, and powder measure tucked inside.  The attached knife was made by Nathan at Conner Prairie.  The outfit is put together in "Horse Trooper" fashion where the horn is attached directly to the bag.  It is made to be worn high up under the right arm.
