That's a nice bag for sure. A new rifle needs a new bag.

That is sweet and should accompany any rifle especially a NEW one.

Nice bag, it is typical to use a smaler shooting bag and a larger shoulder bag for other incidentals that one may need to get to easily and a snapsack or knapsack for items not needed till days end when making camp.

That's a nice-looking possibles bag there, rickd - a great bag to go with a rocklock, IMHO.

I have some tanned deer hide that I've been debating upon making a smaller bag from ( I paid $1 for the entire hide at a flea market), but have been holding off due to the gold/yellowish color of the tanned hide.

Many years ago, inspired by a Foxfire book DIY article, I made a larger bag from a cordovan-tanned hide a friend had given me.
It works "ok", but is a tad stiff, although quiet enough in the woods (surprisingly).
