Great weekend, it rained most of Friday and Saturday So spent some time in the shop getting some projects started, then Saturday evening after the club meeting and taking down the range from the Classic, took all evening to do that, ??? we had 140 targets in the woods but got them all out and back in the target shed, that was the last of the clean up so almost back to normal around here. :) :) Over the year I always get my arrows in a mess and have a few sets that need to be set up so I took time to tune 2 sets of new arrows and check and tune 4 more sets for the 6 or 7 bows I shoot and hunt with the most. A very good job to do when you are by yourself as I was on Friday. Now if I will just keep them straight which I probably won't.  :-\ ;) :) :)

I have a special spot in my shop for arrow work with all I need handy to do the job. :) I softened and roughed out 3 more file knives, small/med. and large. :) I also started a Turkey toe necklace . Mr Maguire (Osage guy from east TN.)use to make these and I always wanted to, so no time like the present.  ;) ;)

That's a nice looking bow!  And even nicer looking backstraps!

26th Pat but who is counting  ;) :) time really get away, seems like yesterday we did #1. Things are getting back to normal for me.Got several little projects going in the shop and the girls are liking being out again. ;) Sister is doing well from the surgery , just call her old 3 toes now  :) and Sally is just getting old and slowing down a bit, except when I fire up the Kobota then she is like a young pup. :) Bob the bow is looking good right now, I like straight limb bows but for the shorter ones I am really drawn to the r/d profile for some reason. Hope to get it shooting in a few days.

Heading to the cabin this morning for a few days, things are pretty much back to normal so plan on getting some shop work done, gold is to get my latest bow tillered, 3 knife blades heat treated and tempered and handles on and also scrape my last hide in the rack and maybe start some brain tanning, got a couple of new guys I am helping with bows right now so we will see how my stuff comes along :-\ either way looking forward to spending some time in the shop and around the fire with no pressure to get anything done.  ;) Hope yall have a good one also. Life is Good.  ;)

What a great weekend, it was beautiful weather to boot, didn't think I would get the projects I had going done but managed to also help with a couple of new bow builders and shoot the practice range also, busy but fun, the weekend just flew by. GregB showed up and also Bucky to work on bows, I lent a hand where needed while working on my 3 knives. Of course Greg needs no help but Bucky you got to keep a close eye on him. Between Greg and I we keep him on the right track.  ;) :) Bucky was working on a really wonky stave with dips and dives and was a challenge to tiller.

I got my r/d flex bow tillered to 53@26, prefect for my trip out west. ;) got my blades heat treated and helped in the shop while they were in the oven getting tempered.  :) Bob showed up to work on his second bow, even got his wife to lend him a hand taking the bark and sap wood off. ;)

Sister is doing well and getting around great with 3 toes. ;) :) The middle of the day was prefect weather to do some hide work so I scrapped and sanded my last hide for the year, good size hide, a nice little buck I killed in late November. Glad to be done scrapping for this year, now for some tanning. Long day for sure but a back strap and tatter supper capped it of nicely. :)
