I dug this pic out of some snap shots. One of my supervisors attended a shoot and took this in 1986. Don't look at the digital watch cuz I never was HC.
Bought the hides from a vendor and took some jeans apart for a pattern. Dunno what I did for the shirt pattern. Soft to the skin, but really not my cup of tea in cold or hot weather. A big beef I have about skins is the fringe hooks on/around everything! NOT SAFE! Rifle is my build, 1" x 44" Douglas Golden Age barrel, with a Hadaway lock. Weighs 10 pounds and my SIL shoots it for his flintlock matches.

A 70's .53 caliber Santa Fe Hawken rifle with much needed frontier repairs. Photo actually along the Santa Fe trail in southeastern Colorado.

Note the iron plate around the lock to repair damage lock mortice. Elk rawhide with buffalo sinew repair of split stock. Still shoots very well.

She’s pretty good with squirrels, otherwise she’s just my steady companion. She’ll go get a dove for me but it’s tenderized and marinated when I get it back, lol.

I took my dog hunting yesterday for a dove hunt as well. It was hot, hot, hot…and the pollen from the Kosha about killed me. Still taking allergy meds today…
