HedgeHunter 67" Hunt Rig "Hind Tit"
« on: October 31, 2020, 08:36:04 am »
Here's is a 2020 hunt bow which slowly got finished up. This particular stave was cut in Todd County KY and came off a large farm that has the Trail of Tears running thru its east west section. The tree the stave came out of was right off the ToT. The forest had gobbled it up and it was sitting there keep guard on the ToT for an unknown number of years. Anywho's, we cut it 2016 and it went in several different tobacco barns and some went to Gil Mag's garage. He called me this summer and said "hey Shawn, you want this dry Hedge in my garage"? told him I would come get it out as it was last of this tree.

The dense piece of wood yielded a 67" 45@28" hunt bow. Which is purdy snappy and does what it was designed to do.
Enjoy

Mother Gue never raised such a foolish child. . . .

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight onto the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor. RLTW

Small target! Hind Tit sent a 60yr old POC 590grn shaft to its mark Oct 3rd.

Nice work and a good shot, Shawn.

What river is that? Since I live in the land of muddy waters, I always appreciate a clear stream.

Thats the mighty Red that drains from Central south KY to the Cumberland River. You know the one Grants blue bellies came floating down in the 1860ís.

Not sure why but i counted coup on a bunch of whitetails with Hind Tit and a tight string already Jim. Guess i was saving room for elk chops?

Beautifully executed classic design. Simple and clean with nothing extra needed.

That is a great looking osage stick HH!  I love the handle and the name of your bow. Looks like it is made to hunt. Great bend and I love the unbraced profile. Great job on the doe...Really nice!

 Sweet bow Hedge. Built to hunt...just the way I like them. Congrats on the doe, too!

Thought i was gonna take a big Tom bobcat tonite with Tit Arvin.
He never gave a good unobstructed shot.

Snaps a 590grn arrow quite well.
