Made myself a couple of plain hunting horns an each has different use. The first holds Fg powder that I use in my 12 ga smoothbore an the second holds FFg that I use in my 54s. Both are right side double twist that I mounted with pine plugs held in with brass nails. The straps are just some scrap leathe that I had around an needed used. Both are air tight an fit my side like a glove. I just eyballed everything so what ya see is what ya get. Hope ya like

I respectfully disagree that these horns are "plain". They are darn well crafted and attractive, if you ask me.

I am niether cultured nor educated. But I know that simplicity can be it's own elegance. Or something to that effect. Great horns!

Plain? Well that settles if I am going to show any pictures of what I have done. They look great. You can consider mine umm more plain and leave it at that.

Keep your powder dry.

Red I used a small fiddle peg from track of the wolf on the top horn an on the bottom horn I whittled out a piece of curly maple that I had left over from a rifle build. You probably cant tell but if ya hold the bottom horn up to the sun you can see how much powder is in it Big Grin

Hey wattlebuster. What did you use to turn down the tips of your horns?

I wouldn't really call those plane horns. They look pretty fancy from my view.
