Here are a few pictures of the St. Louis powder horn that Scott Sibley made for me a few months ago. We chose various elements from James Audubon's powder horn, William Clark's horn and one collected at Ft. Leavenworth in 1838. The base plug is made of both buffalo horn and bone from one that Scott had shot a few years ago.

I still haven't decided on what type of strap to put it on though; maybe a heddle woven, finger woven or twine of wool yard with beads woven in. But for now I made a narrow buffalo hide strap.
