Post by: bjrogg on July 30, 2022, 07:00:59 am
Iím in but in all honesty I could very well be late. Whenever the mailing date is. I will eventually get my arrow sent out though and I might not even be late. I just want everyone to know that up front.

I can see being busy till Thanksgiving and I donít want everyone to wait til then.

If I get your name please understand. You might have to wait, but you will get a nice arrow.

PS I still feel like I need to send another one to Jake as his got broken in mail last year. I havenít forgot that

Post by: M2A on August 12, 2022, 08:59:29 am
I'm a little new to the whole shoot shaft thing but got a seasoned viburnum shaft worked down.(harvested in 2020) Straightened a few days ago and seems to have held the corrections well. Spine looks good as well. Knapped out 3 points and will be using the best one for this arrow. practiced my stain materials on a practice shaft, showed to the wife and she made some suggestions. I'll take some of her input, but may go rouge. The voices in my head gave me a good idea and I might have to run with it :o. Anyhow, hope to cut in self nock tonight and wrap to take a bare shaft shot or 2 before I continue. Hate to give an estimate on completion but its coming along.

Just an FYI here...any package over 30" will have a $15 surcharge added to the normal shipping cost with USPS. IMO, they are still the best shipping option. I send most things I ship USPS Priority Mail. Shorter delivery time with fewer folks handling the package.
Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: Trapper Rob on August 14, 2022, 08:24:02 pm
Anyone got anything started yet
Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: Pat B on August 14, 2022, 09:31:40 pm
I started working on a sourwood shoot today. Still got a little straightening to do. Thinking of point options and fletching options.
Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: M2A on August 15, 2022, 08:42:50 am
Been working on mine at every opertunity. Spent friday evening cutting in the knock. Hope to fit the point tonight. Stain , fletch, and finish up I hope before the weekend. Was going to try, for the first time a 2 fletch but going to stick with the style I been doing for my own arrows lately.

Just finished mine up yesterday.. now I need to pack it up & ship it off
Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: M2A on August 17, 2022, 08:31:19 am
Mounted the point last night and really thought I could finish it up, but I'm too slow. Cut the feathers to length but not to shape yet. Ran out of steam but was a good opertunity to let some sinew binding dry overnight. Just going to take my time and hope to have things complete by the weekend. I'll send you a Pm when its done Rob so I can get your mailing info.

Mike take your time I know everyone has a lot going on. If you can post pictures of the arrow that would be great I can't figure out how to post pics on here.

Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: M2A on August 18, 2022, 10:18:55 pm
Just a couple sinew wraps, seal them up and done. So now for the silly question, I never sent an arrow in the mail. Was figuring a pvc pipe and cut some packing material to prevent it from moving around. Or is there a more simple solution? Had some close calls with sending bows via UPS in the past(amazing that they could break a schedule 40 threaded plug).

I'll make sure I get a few pics before I send it out Rob. Below is the backup shaft and point. Practiced a bit with the shaft and stain to see what might look good, one im sending out has a different pattern  :)

Got it narrowed down to 2 shafts, I think!  Probably a trade point, single bevel,  2 fletch.

I have Pat Bís arrow done but I have been way to busy with work and funerals to get it packed up and sent out.

Hopefully I can catch my breath here now. I sure hope Iím done with funerals for awhile

Iím hoping to get some pictures before I box it up.

Iím not forgetting about it Pat.

No problem, Brian. At your convenience.  :OK
Also, sorry for your losses. You've had a difficult and busy summer.
Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: M2A on August 23, 2022, 08:43:04 pm
Got a package from Pat B yesterday. Enclosed were 2 sourwood shoot shaft arrows. One with a stone point with turkey wing fletchings and the other the shaft was sharpened, fire hardened with goose fletchings. Both are in the 2 fletch style with self nocks. I've seen lots of pictures of the 2 fletch style but never any in person before. Very cool. Eastern woodland is some of my favorite type of style so these 2 examples are super.   
Hope my pictures do them justice. Thanks so much Pat!
Mike

Point is a Madison style from Nethers' Flint ridge I dug last year. Overall I was pretty happy with how that turned out. Pretty much the best I can do. Viburnum shaft and just had some fun with the fletchings and barberry/walnut stains.  I had not been happy with my sinew wraps that I had been putting on my own arrows so I slowed down for this one and tried to keep it as neat as I could. Funny how much better things can be when you take your time. Anyways, hope you like it Rob.

Got my trade arrow in! It looks awesome. Nice 2 fletch with a field point. Also came with another shaft,feathers, and a trade point to make me another. Hopefully hawkdancer will chime in to let us know what the other shaft is. Thanks it's awesome!
Title: Re: 2022 Arrow Trade
Post by: Jakesnyder on September 30, 2022, 08:58:08 am
I should of checked my messages before posting...
The arrow shaft is bamboo spine 45149#,  turkey fletching, sinew wrapping on the tip, screw in point secured with glue.  Also included a red osier dogwood shaft, a trade point, and a couple feathers for a project arrow.  Btw, the shaft needs some straightening! (lol)The trade point is saw metal, and based on the arrows used in "Dances with Wolves".
