We just killed one in Athens, Texas a few weeks ago.  Would have saved it had I thought about it.  I think it winked at me before we hammered its head.  It had a beautiful pattern though!

Dang Marie, I would keep that kind of information to myself.  ;) You never know who might show up with a lynch mob.  ;D Justin

I wouldn't mind so much if the lynch mob would cut down my hackberry tree and black walnut tree and drag them away for me!   ;)

How big of a tree and where is it.  I'm sure we can at least haul off the parts big enough to make a bow.  ;D Justin

Actually I am going to call some tree guys.  Pappy told me how to tell them to cut it so that they could be used for bows.  I hope I remember his instructions.  They are pretty big trees.

Checked ebay and there are 4 listed for auction, pricey though

I don't know these people, but this place says they have them for 1.50 an inch.
