Glad you like the bag, that one is not mine, but an old friend made it.  Good to see it go to a good home.

Be sure and post some pictures!
If you should need any help posting pictures, let any of us know as we would more'n glad to help you out.

I'm glad you like the rifle. Now that have a whole bunch of targets be sure and let us know how it shoots.
Although "looks" is a wonderful thing, when it comes to Flintlocks it's function and accuracy that takes 1st. place.

Thanks for the acknowledgement David, I am sooo happy someone won that nice piece of art work who will appreciate it for what it is. After all, it was in use all during the days of the Fur Trade era, even long before that.

In the beginning, I had to openly admit that I was a stranger to the word and term "Noggin" when Don Hanson offered it as a prize....then he sent it on to me to send on to the winner.

I did some research and shore'nuff...the Noggin, and the Kuksa, or Kasa, are all one of the same.(I am familiar with the name & use of a Kasa,)

I am including a link that shows the Kuksa or Kasa, the picture of the Kuksa being made is almost identical in pattern and looks to the Noggin you received from Roaddog. The one thing will see in the link is no matter what name you use, the making of one is no easy mater.

Congratulations on a nice win. A win with true historical significance.

Mad Irish Jack has signed in both yesterday, and today....
I have not read any real recent posts from him, but the computer says he's been around a few times.

Two Step and folks, I am still around. I'm busy being Dad and shooting postal and other practice range stuff. My son recently purchased an 81.5 acre parcel with a log cabin, outbuildings and a range. I've been going 'tween my home place and the cabin to help trailblaze hunting trails. I haven't been on the 'puter much the last month or two. I want too keep shooting and hopefully I've finished with the bad luck. I don't have a problem with this getting old stuff, but my body isn't thrilled with it. I'll be fine as long as I keep out the way of the young folks carelessness. They keep trying to bang me up in my vehicles. Be two years since the last bang around laid me up. Rehabbed complete and doing great. In my part of the woods we ship on three legged curr dogs that we try to get out the way. I sent you a PM Two Step.
