This will be another first for me.Gonna try to post a picture.This is pretty ugly horn#2.The fellow who made this one has #1. Both horns were taken off of a dead bull found while rabbit hunting in 2018. This one was made in 2019. Certainly not old , but one nail used to fasten the cap is from the Civil War time period. Made with folding knife, tomahawk, throwing knife , and  hot wire for making necessary holes. Used bees wax for sealing from moisture. Strap was made from a buck skin harvested in Iowa with a 50cal flintlock. It certainly won't win any beauty contests, but I love it and use it often. [ Invalid Attachment ]  [ Invalid Attachment ]

Kees, not sue if you know but Joe from the Gun Works passed about 4 years ago, his wife Suzie is still running the shop

Yes sir, I knew that and I try to order whatever I need from her if she has it.
