Otis Leather Company

Introducing the Otis Leather Turkey Sling. These have been made in a limited basis for a few years and the feedback has been great! A padded shoulder pad and a single strap with loops for a turkey’s head on one end and it’s feet in the other make short work of carrying that heavy tom out of the woods.

Not available on the website yet, so order here on Facebook via messenger or email [email protected]. Introductory price of $50. Personalization available for additional cost.

Special thanks to Clay Olson at Sheaux Stopper Custom Calls for some of these pictures!

These guys are really good at filling up their Otis Leather Super Guide Straps. Book a hunt with them now before all the dates are filled up! You won’t regret it!


You can’t be part of the adventure if your sitting on the couch!

Get those hunts booked for 2019-2020 in Stuttgart, Arkansas.

Still have some room left for the openers.


When you spend your money with Otis Leather Company, your purchase is covered for the life of the product for workmanship and material. We take great pride in handcrafting a product that will last a lifetime, but should you run in to an issue please let us know so you can get back in the field as quickly as possible. (Certain restrictions apply)

It's always easy to recommend services when the focus on exceptional customer service. Otis Leather Company is one of those companies we will always recommend to our clients. We use 6 or 7 of their quail lanyards through the season, and through general wear and tear a few of the brass snaps weren't working properly. I called John to order a few snaps, he asked me to mail the lanyards to him, and he repaired and treated the leather on the lanyards FREE OF CHARGE! Truly great service on great products!

Turkey season is here! Don’t go into the field without your Otis Leather Company Turkey Carrier. We have several carriers (non-engraved) in stock and available for IMMEDIATE SHIPPING (unless we’re out chasing turkeys ourselves😎).

Order yours today!

Otis Leather Company turned 9 today!

I just completed 120 custom leather cup wraps for #blastandcastmensministries 1st annual North Texas Gala coming up September 21 in Ft Worth,TX. The ministry of Blast and Cast has had a profound effect on me and I am excited to see its continued growth. Make plans now to attend. There will be dinner, auctions, raffles and so much much more. Make it a date night all while supporting this great organization. https://blastandcast.org/event/2018-north-texas-gala/

Here’s a picture of the edge finishing progression you’ll find on all Otis Leather game straps. Start with a square edge, round the edges, then burnish to a glassy finish. One of the many details you’ll find only @Otis Leather Company. #attentiontodetail #leathergamestrap #duckstrap #customleather

Every item at Otis Leather is made right here, so why not a new website too? Our website has served us well for almost 9 years, but is terribly outdated. We’re hoping to get this new site online soon. This is a lot of work!

Having the ability to personalize your products from Otis Leather with either laser engraving directly on the leather or on an engraved brass plate has always been a popular option. Until now, the brass plates have been engraved with a traditional rotary engraver. I’m excited to announce that brass plates will now be engraved with a fiber laser engraver that actually burns away the letters and leaves a beautiful engraving that really stands out. This is an exciting advancement in product customization.

What do you think?

My wife and kids surprised me with a new guitar for Fathers Day and I knew just the guy to make a strap to go along with it😀. I don’t get to make things for myself very often so it was fun to get a bit of free time in the shop.

Today’s work.

Turkey Season is here! Do you have an Otis Leather Turkey Strap in your vest? For the duration on turkey season, all turkey strap orders will be fast tracked to a 1-2 day production time so that you get it sooner. This is for non-personalized orders. Laser engraved orders will take a little longer. Have a great turkey season! http://www.otisleather.com/Turkey-Carrier.html

I make a large variety of duck and goose straps to suit many different hunting method and styles. Occasionally a customer doesn’t quite find what they are looking for so they ask me for a custom strap. Here’s a one of a kind 12 loop strap based on the guide/super guide design. Notice the different length drops so that the birds hang better. What do you think?

What a great pic from customer West Texas Quail Outfitters. So glad to see those Dove and Quail Carriers being used!

Two weeks left of the season and we're still finding the birds!!

Out of the box and immediately into service. That’s what we like to see! It’s always so exciting to see something that you made being used and enjoyed by a customer. Check out West Texas Quail Outfitters to find out more about where the Dove and Quail Carriers are being used. Thanks again Ryan!

Very excited when I got home. Got 2 new quail lanyards from John at Otis Leather Company. I already have one of his lanyards, and I love it! If you're looking for a high quality lanyard at a very reasonable price (and great customer service), get hold of Otis Leather Company. John can even engrave your logo on the strap!

So I learned to day that ANYONE can claim to work for a business and Facebook does nothing about it. Obviously this guy does not work for me. So annoying. Hey Ezeck...if you’re gonna work here you need to clean the shop! What a jerk

Finally getting in a few hunts this year with Blast & Cast Men's Ministries.

Work doesn’t stop for a thanksgiving road trip. Here’s wishing everyone a happy and safe thanksgiving from Otis Leather Company

Every item made by Otis Leather is handcrafted one at a time. Get your orders in soon while there's still time!

When you cant go duck hunting, at least some of the duck straps you've made can. Check out these opening day pics from Run-N-Gun Adventures LLC. Anyone looking for a top notch hunt definitely need to check these guys out. They also have a brand new lodge they just opened that is first class. Thanks for posting Daniel Kubecka and Nick Stillwell, looks like a great start to the season!

So it begins! Had some really good hunts this morning on our properties closer to the coast. Our stuff up on the northern portion was a little off for our club as we're still waiting on farmers to finish harvesting 2nd crop rice. Given how much it has warmed up over the last handful of days, we're happy with how things went this morning. Highlight had to be the blond pintail that was harvested and going on the wall at the lodge. #teamrng #getducks Getducks.com Tanglefree Waterfowl Products Otis Leather Company LAW Call Lanyards Lifetime Decoys Quack Rack Daniel Nick Fletcher Ben Trey Lauren Kevin

Wow! Today Otis Leather turns 8! What an incredible journey it has been. Sometimes I step back and look at where I started, with just one partial side of leather and a few tools I had accumulated over the years, and I am amazed by how much the business has grown. From the thousands of satisfied customers, partnerships with major conservation organizations, large hunting lodges and outfitters, and being included in national publications, I cant wait to see what the future holds. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the growth of Otis Leather Company over the last 8 years! God has truly blessed this business!

Here are some custom 32 loop dove and quail carriers headed to Haiti. These are a follow up order to a custom strap I made for another Haitian dove hunter about 4 years ago. I’m going to go out on a limb here and declare the Otis Leather Dove and Quail Carrier the official dove carrier of Haiti. 😜

The Dove and Quail carrier being included in the current issue of Garden & Gun Magazine has really boosted sales. These make a great gift for yourself or someone else. Every item is hand made to order so right now is the perfect time to order for Christmas or that special occasion.

I love hardware day. The Fedex man not so much. Thats over 100 lbs of solid brass! Only the best quality hardware goes on an Otis Leather product.

What an incredible honor to be included in the October/November issue of Garden & Gun Magazine. It's hard to describe the feeling when you open up a magazine and see a product that you dreamed up and designed printed on the page. A big thanks to T. Edward Nickens for recognizing my product and including it in his article. Feeling very blessed right now.

Here's a little bit of Otis Leather history. I made this duck strap around 2002, way before I even thought about starting a business. Otis Leather is fast approaching it's 8 year anniversary. Thankfully, I am a lot better at making leather items now then I was back then!

Now is a great time to put in that order you've been thinking about so that you can start building memories with your custom Otis Leather product.

I'm working on another Delta Waterfowl order today. This time for the Delta Waterfowl Foundation-Houston Chapter. You folks around Houston go check out their banquet on August 24. https://deltawaterfowl.org/houston-chapter-houston-tx/

This is so cool! Check out these pics from a customer in New Zealand. It's always so neat send something that I made 7500 miles away and actually get to see it being used. Thanks again Jenna and Parriehunter!

Check out the Parriehunter page when you get a chance.

The game carrier is getting used here in New Zealand. Just had our season open. Thanks to the wet spring plenty of birds about with us getting a 7 man limit of 175 mallards on Saturday.

Thanks, from my wife for our 3rd wedding anniversary.

Waterfowl season is over 😱. Once your depression clears, it's a great time to clean up your gear before putting it away for next season. I'm often asked by customers what they should treat their leather with. I always recommend Skidmore's Leather Cream, an incredible American made product that I've used for many years. I have a new case of 6 oz jars coming, get yours today for only $11 plus $7 USPS priority mail shipping. Message me here or email [email protected] to order. Not yet available on my website.
Skidmore's Fine Beeswax Products

Should I buy the UPS man a beer? I just got in 153 sq ft of heavy weight latigo leather for duck straps, leashes and collars. That's 145 lbs of some of the best leather available. Remember, the off season is a great time to order so that you're ready when opening day comes again.

Morning business meeting today with long time customer Run-N-Gun Adventures LLC

Here's a sweet deadmount by Shane Smith that I did the straps for. Great work Shane. Checkout http://waterfowltaxidermy.com/ to see some more of Shane's amazing work.

2 man limit

Im about to head out to the post office with the last of the promised Christmas orders. Thanks so much for another awesome Christmas at Otis Leather! Not much time to rest however, I have more orders to make now than I had for Christmas delivery!



Big props tonight to the man who does all of my laser engraving. He stayed at his shop until nearly 9 on a Friday night and finished engraving my last batch of Christmas orders so that I can get those finished and sent out. As a one-man shop to another one-man shop, I appreciate your dedication Jeff McKinnon.

Jeff has 2 companies, A Laser Touch, and Spartan Tactical Coating. He can laser engrave just about anything you can think of from Yeti cups to AR15 lowers with NFA trust information. He also does ceracoat finishes on firearms and other parts. If you need any of these services, Jeff is the man.




The FedEx man just dropped off 2 new sides of lanyard leather. This stuff is beautiful! American made leather made from American hides👍

I got to make a collar for my neighbor's mastiff. Kolt weighs in at a touch over 180 lbs and isn't full grown yet! What a cool dog.

Otis Leather Company celebrates 7 years in business today! Once again I am humbled and honored to be able to continue producing high quality leather goods for hunting and hunting dogs. Thank you to all of my past, present, and future customers. Most importantly I want to thank God for His continued blessing on Otis Leather Company.

Go to the blind in style this season with an Otis Leather Company custom call lanyard. We just received 3 new hides of North American elk leather for the neck band lining of your new lanyard. Here are a few pictures of our lanyards and the raw components used to make them.


Here are a few dove and quail carriers, duck straps and lanyards that are shipping out today. Get your orders in now. Opening day will be here before you know it!

Sometimes the best ideas come from customers wanting a custom design. This is a pair of turkey straps just delivered to Eric and Clay over at Sheaux Stopper Custom Calls https://www.facebook.com/Sheaux-Stopper-Custom-Calls-208829572797785/. Designed with one loop to go over the head and the other over the feet. This design might just make it into the regular lineup. What do you think?
