New CLA web page and auction information

The Contemporary Longrifle Association has updated their web page, and given the Contemporary Longrifle Foundation a spot to post up news and information there too. The CLF is the group that raised money for the CLA...its the board members of the CLF that edit and direct the production of the American Tradition magazine, made the House Brothers project happen, and who put on the annual live auction at the Lexington show in August.

I would encourage you to look at the new CLA web page: http://www.longrifle.com/

Skink hide

I found a real commercial dealer that is actually selling hair on slink (or Slunk?) calf hide. What is that? Its actually the tanned hide of an unborn calf.The hide is tanned in Argentina, and unfortunately its not vegetable tanned. However, that said, it is exactly whats needed for so many hair on professionally made hunting bags. The hair is like velvet, and it really cant be replicated well. Even though "shaved" hides can be worked up and used, deer being used most often, once you see a real slunk hide you will realize the huge difference.

Spammers

well, I recently opened the blog for registration for a few days, and about a dozen spammers logged in and started posting their wares, so I had no choice but to once again close the registration, so this is a read only site....if you really want to log on and register so you can post etc...then you need to email me personally. Sorry, but theres little else I can do.

The Wooden Plow folk art studio is up and running.

I like to create art for arts sake, and sometimes break away from bags, horns, and writing to make something that can only be called folk art I suppose. I usually work in traditional primitive mediums and styles that reflect early Americana, and as the mood suits me I will create pen and ink drawings tinted with water colors, fraktuer paintings, folk dolls, early American painted blanket chests, traditional early 19th century southern furniture, various hand forged iron works, and other whimsical pieces like weather vanes and miniatures.
