Nov/Dec Issue - First Annual Bow Trade
« on: November 29, 2011, 09:20:51 pm »
I just received my new issue of PA Magazine.  I can't wait to read Kay's article on bamboo arrows. 

I also enjoyed the article on the 1st Annual Primitive Archer Bow Trade (2011).  I don't want to miss out on the 2nd Annual.  Please make sure the postings are LOUD and CLEAR!  Sign me up!

By the way....Nice trade bow, Lee!

I went immediately to the article on the WaJam.  Sure enough, there's a couple pictures of my uncle, Myron Olson.  He's the guy in the funny hat and the beard that might just be a challenger to Pat B's.  It's good enough habitat that I think I saw a spruce grouse hiding in it at the family reunion this last summer. 

Those guys have too much fun, didja notice the line of stave clamps they had set up!  Production line bowyering classes!
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

JW, I did notice and admired the stave clamp setup they had there.  Doing bowbuilding instruction at some of the shoots, I'm wondering how to come up with a portable setup, like that.  Sure beats a clamp-on bench vise on a picnic table!

Good to see Mickey back at it. Beginning to think him and his cycle had fallen off the edge of the earth or someting. Great magazine, wish it was monthly ;^)  Bogaman

Thanks Pappy, and Bogaman. Cycle is pretty much put away for the winter (although I rode last weekend)

From the looks of it, I will be hunting the Late Season again this year.  Letting those little ones put on a couple more pounds. Well, that is my excuse anyway. Wait much longer though and Dianne won't have a roast for Christmas again this year. She wouldn't be very happy if that happens.

Hey Mickey.  Glad to see you still getting out there.  Have some fun my friend.  Did you ever get any points made of those slabs I sent you?
