Shot Bag #60

A comment made on this bag by a friend was,
           "This dog will hunt!"
This one is based of a original bag I saw at the CLA show this year. It’s just a plain simple bag but has the room for the little extras that some of us like to carry.
The bag is made of 2/3 oz. veg tanned leather, hand stitched and dyed.The bag size is 71/2” wide at the opening, 81/2” deep with a 11/4” tapered guest with the front seam welted and turned while the back seam is welted but stitched directly to the back panel.
There a small inside pocket also.The strap is 1” wide and is fitted with a iron buckle. The bag is then finished with neatsfoot oil and then bee’s wax worked in.
