I took some time and ground the neck from that big buck Kevin killed, I got 9lbs of pure ground venison from just the neck, he was a big old boy. My girls love it when I am trimming and grinding meat. ;) :) Then back to the hickory and my knife all finished up with 2 coats of tru oil on the handle and Polly on the stand.. :)

Shawn got his handle on, Elk tine, looks great. :) Jesse showed up to work on the big hide he has, it was damp outside so he hurried the drying process by setting in front of the space heater, it works but you really have to stay at it and he did. :)

I got the big blade laid out and we finished up all the Hickory, ended up with 47 adult staves and 2 kids about 50 inches or so. I managed to get all done and more that I had planned. Great weekend for sure. Hope yall had a good one also and have a great up coming 2020. Life is Good. :)

It's hard to believe 2020 is almost here Pappy. Growing up they'd always say all the things that were going to happen by 2020. I was so far away. Funny how day after day it just kept getting closer and now it only a couple days away.

Well it looks like a very rainy next few days so I am headed to the cabin to get some shop work done. I have 2 deer heads to Euro. mount and plan on boiling them out today, also some knife work and am getting the itch to work on another bow. :-\ I got the big hide all scrapped and de haired yesterday and moved into a dry place but will probably be to damp to do much to it over the weekend, I was hoping to get it off the rack but will probably have to wait until next week. :( Hope yall have a good one. Life is Good. :)

Got all the hair off the hide but got to damp to really get it cleaned up so I had to move on to other things.Shawn showed up and went to the bard and brought some Osage up to work on, wound up getting 4 staves from this peace, 2 really nice ones and 2 that will make a bow for sure. GregB showed up to work on some knife scales and skin and process a doe his brother shot. :) He stays as busy as I do. ;)
