Thatís how I like my jerky to Pappy. Totally dehydrated will keep forever. I guess you seemed to kinda like mine to if I remember correctly. Not everyone does, but itís how my kids and I like it.

The knife turned out sweet.

Thanks for sharing your weekend with us

Yep I remember that BJ at ElmHall and yes I liked it. No DC I don't smoke it, just marinate it for 24 hours and the dehydrator for 10 or 12, check it at about 6 hours and rotate the trays ,set on about 100 degrees. :) when it is getting close I check it ever hour or so until it is how I want it. Then lay it out and let it cool well before I bag it up.  ;) I also slice it pretty thin, maybe 1/8 to a 1/4 or so, even as I can with a knife. ;)

Headed to the cabin for the weekend, looks like rain today so some shop time may be the order of the day. Got a bow started the last few day, a small diameter Osage with great rings and very good ratio , got it almost floor tillered so may cut some nocks today and start the tillering process.
Haven't made a bow for myself in a while and feels good scrapping wood. Hope yall have a good one also. Life is Good. :)

Jeff, have you looked at past Classics in the events section? Lots of pics of the event over quite a few years.

You will Jeff, also you can go to our web sight, several video of some of the characters that come to the classic and things going on.
[twinoaksbowhunters.org.] Had a great weekend got a lot done and saw a lot of good friends. Few pictures. Got my stand made for one of my new knives and the sheath finished for the other one, it's rawhide lined with brain tan cover. :)

Then I put of some walnut die from walnuts I saved this winter. I had a white all wool sweater that I wasn't every going to wear so decided to die it, turned it a really nice looking gray. I made up about a gallon of nice stain after cooking it off.  :)

Bill got the bow down from 50@27 to 30@25, just right for Linda. My walnut die finished and cooling to be put up. Got my bow off the form and looked pretty good but needed a little more tweaking so I did that in the vice with adjustable wrench/ heat and weights. :)

Jesse showed up to finish his big hide and Mark and Mark showed up for some bow work, it is the first Mark's 2nd bow and the other Mark's 1st. They both are loving it so far. ??? and of course some time around the fire shooting the bull. ;)

Shawn and I done some shooting of his new bow and the 2 Mark's stayed hard at their new bow's to be. ;) :) I keep reminding them it's not a bow yet, just a piece of wood so don't fall in love with it, their will be plenty of time for that after it is shooting. A nice fire for Saturday evening and night, it rained and was chilly all day. ;)
