Back strap and gravy for supper, then back to my knife projects, stained the sheath with walnut stain I had made . Neck knife handle fitted , now ready to work the blade and heat treat and temper. Also got my blade mounted, wrapped with wet rawhide so should tighten up nicely.  :)

Bob It's not wide open here yet but the bucks are just wandering around checking things out as they do in late October, I like this time of year better than when the full rut hits, if you see um you can usually get a shot now, when the full rut starts you just have to be lucky enough for them to stop near your stand.  ;) You will usually see bigger Bucks when the rut is hot but getting a shot at them with what I hunt with is tough to say the least. I am OK with the smaller ones anyway. ;) yep road kill gets bad this time of year here also.  :)

Congrats on a good harvest Pappy and Will!  The Titans got lucky.  I bet you guys were nervous with all those Yankees running around Nashville.  At least they didn't bring the U-Hauls, so you guys are safe.   

Prayers and blessings to Beau and Christina for a safe delivery.

Thanks guys, great day for me and my family, well yesterday  :) :) Another bow hunter Tanner Rhys Baggett was born , October 21 th 2021 at 6:15 pm he weighted 8 lbs 13 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. Mom and Baby doing well. I really was hoping it was going to be a Boy, 1 girl having PapPap wrapped is enough, ;) :) the boys have me wrapped also and Love them all the same but little girls are just different. :) I am headed to the cabin in a bit and finish up Tanners bow, got one ready and waiting cut to 23 inches t-t, just need to cut it down to 21 1/2 inches t-t finish tillering and finish work, it is a nice piece of Hickory cut from our farm this will be his first bow. ;) :) NaNa [MissJoanie] and PapPap [ Me] are so excited, we haven't got to see him yet except for face time because of hospital rules on visitors right now but hope they will be home Sunday if all goes well so we can hold him. Hope yall have a good one also.  :) Life is good. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spent most of the day Friday working on my neck knife and tanners new bow, the fine piece of Hickory ??? >:( popped a splinter, I tried a wrap but decided to just make another out of Osage, we all know Osage is King. ;) :) :)

Jesse showed up, the two bucks I killed I gave him the hides, I still have 8 or 9 in rawhide form now and he didn't have any. He went right to work on them and got them fleshed and racked. The Hickory was looking good before the splinter  :)
