Here's my equipment for this year. It is a White Ash bow that pulls 62 pounds @ 28" with beaver fur silencers.  I have 2 nutter flu flu arrows for squirrels and rabbits.  I have 4 arrows with tradepoints made from bandsaw blades from VB.  The arrows are all made of red osier doqwood that was soaked in Watco oil with self nocs.  The trade points are tied on with sinew from my archery killed deer from last year.  This is my first year hunting with all traditional gear and am very excited.  I have been out one morning so far and had 2 bucks within 15 yards, but couldn't get a clear shot at the big one (a very nice 8 pointer).  Of course the little fork horn buck provided plenty of opportuities, but I just couldn't shoot him with the big one standing there.  So far it's been a great year. 

It sure is fun seeing everyone elses hunting gear.

Mike

Love the grain in that Ash (on belly side) purty bow :). Looks like all you need is a target.
When you come upon a track or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.
