Made something for my moose hunt
My hunting buddy, Bret Shaw, and I are going moose hunting in British Columbia the first week of October and I decided to make us some arm guards to commemorate the occasion. Bret and I have been friends ever since we went on our first archery elk hunt way back in 2005. No elk were harmed but I came home with a good friend so I'd say the trip was a success.
The backing of these arm guards is vegetable tanned cowhide and the gray facing is giraffe hide. The black trim is deer hide and I carved the lace hooks from deer antler. I had the moose images laser etched onto some deer hide at the Springfield Leather Company. I then sewed everything up by hand using B-50 bowstring material and artificial sinew. I sure hope they bring us good luck!
