Just read the whole sticky thread from GlisGlis!  Very interesting post!!  Time to work some bones.  Sending some to EdwardS for a "file along"!

is there a difference in the type of bones you use? Cow vs Deer vs Elk vs etc?

I don't think there is any real scientific evidence on that.  My guess is the wild game bones would be a bit stronger due to continuous stress.  Free range beef would also fall in that range.  That is a w.a.g.!
I will be harvesting some deer and elk bones in a while and hope to test.  My first thought was the bones should be very well dried, but then I considered that the original method would have been to use "fresh" bones from the kill.  Also, cow bones were not readily available in most areas in the US.  Have fun and post your results!

You can get beef bones in the dog food/treat dept of grocery and big lot stores, some with soft tissue attached, some bleached clean.  I just made a dagger from a beef bone I got from Wal Mart.

I read some were that the plains tribes used a certain part of the front leg of a Bison to make bone arrow heads. They were supposed to have killed Buffalo with those heads. I believe it.

A very deadly head can be made from heat treated osage.l coppied a howard hill head 3 to 1 ratio and put it on a 11/32 cedar shaft.it went through a 120 lb doe like butter.45 # osage 27" draw 12  yard shot.the head wasnt hurt a bit but the shaft broke in half.
and know i dont have a pic thanks to photo bucket .i wouldnt be a bit afraid to use good fresh bone.
