Two long, narrow pouches made of hide and held together for a portion of their length with knotted strips of buckskin. The shorter pouch is a tapered cylinder, open on the large end with fringe at the smaller end. The longer pouch is slightly curved with short fringe at either end. The strap is currently in three pieces and there is a fourth that is still attached on the bow case. Brown with very little mottled dark grey and brown fur remaining.
