Ah Eddie don't be modest really. You will only need 225 or so.  ;D

OK Sean, here ya go ;D. I was waitin on the arra's - finally got em done, shew!! This is all I have been able to muster thus far. Don't have a quiver - will just have to do like Jamie this year and have two in the hand and one on the string - course should only need one right?, yeah right. Will prolly use the hic bow - it packs a littel more punch. Wish I had an osage....

Pappy - you got more bows, arra's, quiver's than you can shake a stick at. Like that little bow, don't recall ever seeing that one, good luck huntin!
 That's some nice artwork on the bow and arra's Jamie - what kind of string is that?

Thanks cowboy,I posted it last year sometime,It is a sweet little bow,took 2 deer with it last year
it handles good from a stand.The only problem was the sinew came up on the tip when I would get it wet so I trimmed the sinew back about 4 inches and put some horn tips on it so that should
take care of that problem.Very nice set up jamie,looks deadly. :)

Here's what I'm using. 50# white ash board bow, 2 shoot nutters, 5 trade points made with metal from VB, first 3 are mounted on cane from bob, last 2 are
homemade ash shafts, all are fletched with eastern turkey. And of course Dane's custom bow sock.

All right, I finally got the pictures, here they are. I'm shooting my Osage character bow, with a few modifications to it, some of you might have seen it at Mojam.
The arrow in the picture is the first I have made for this fall, it's my hog arrow  >:D. It weighs just under 600 grains, a ton for my 46 lb 24" draw bow! If I get close, though, it'll do the job better than a lighter one. The head is out of metal from VB, great stuff!

btw, after modification, the above mentioned bow (the same one I did the build-along for) is 58" long, 46lb@24" and shoots better than any of my other bows I've made yet.

I just added it to go further towards silencing the bow, as I had a hog jump the string last year (even though I wasn't going to hit him anyway... :P....).
So I think from that experience I'm a bit overly cautious this year.  ::)
