Wilderness Road Muzzleloaders Prize by Clinton Byers

This horn and bag set was created for the Wilderness Road Muzzleloaders and will be the first-place prize in their year-long shingle shoot. The bag is made from 2 oz. vegetable-tanned leather and is completely hand stitched. The leather was dyed with homemade harness dye and has been lightly distressed to give it a used look. Though not common to southern bags, this pouch is fully lined with linen and has a hanging pocket inside. The banded horn is of a Virginia/N Carolina style with a single band, applied horn tip, and a walnut base plug. The patch knife is homespun from an old saw blade and deer antler tine.
