The grandkids have played with him over the years. It’s sad that I have no rhythm and so my ranger can’t keep a beat either, but in someone else’s hand he can dance a jig.

Here is a shot bag and horn that were made to be together.
This is a well made but simple shot bag that was common to find hanging for trade or sale in any gunsmith, cobble or harness makers shop in the 18th century.
The bag is made from 2/3 oz. veg. tanned leather, handed stitched with welted seams. The bag size is 6 ¼” at the opening and 7” at its widest point, and 7 1/2’ deep.
The opening of the bag as well as the rolled edge of the flap is trimmed in pigskin. The backside of the flap is lined in natural linen and held closed with a tab and button.
There is a small inside pocket, 4” by 3”
The strap is cut from 5/6oz. veg. tanned leather and fitted out with a hand forged Iron buckle.
The bag and strap is dyed brown and treated with neat’s-foot oil and bee’s wax to complete the bag.
The powder horn is also simple, light in color, measuring 14 ½” around the outside curve and 3 ¼” across the butt and is air tight. The strap is made of a heavy cow hide and dyed a dark brown and held in place with two iron staples.

I made the bag to look the same as my old one, the only difference is I added a gusset 1" wide tapering down to 1/8 “and made it deeper about 1”. The strap is 1/4” wider because a friend gave me a hand made brass buckle to use on my bag. It’s a nice little bag. I’m just not sure on the size, it looks BIG! Well turkey season is coming up fast so I will give it some woods time and see if I like it.
