Other Outdoor Gear / Re: Powder Horn

This my powder horn.  It was made about forty two years ago by Jack Brooks, a skilled custom rifle maker who makes late 1700's flintlocks, rifles, and accoutrements.  A friend of mine gave it to me for Christmas back then and it has been with me on every hunt with my rifle and smoothbore since.







The bird in the middle photo is a distelfink, or in modern terms, a Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Art bird.  This has several forms and the one on this horn is sort of a wild Turkey. 

My name is on the horn, with a saying that goes ............ His Horn, Steal it not for Fear of Shame, for on it Stands the Owners Name.

  Very nice Stan, thanks for sharing.    :thumbsup: :cheers:

OE I live east of Belle Fourche in rural Butte county.  That is about 60 miles north of Rapid City.  We live a couple of miles south of highway 212 and way north of I-90.  If you ever come through we could meet up somewhere.

Thanks Stan.  I'll keep in mind for future.  Pretty country up there

Most of the trees here are evergreen but in the ritzy parts of town all the deciduous trees are turning color.  I love fall!  This summer was extremely hot and smoky, I'm almost looking forward to winter while we still have winter.
