A Mountain Man's Possibles Bag

Everything a Mountain Man Could Need

Embed

  1. In the days of the mountain man, a "possibles bag" held everything that could possibly be needed for the day: black powder, powder measurer, flint and steel, lead balls and patch, a patch knife, and a skinning knife, as well as other personal items.
  2. The horn on top of the bag is the priming horn for a Flintlock rifle while the larger horn below contained the main gunpowder that was loaded down the barrel.
