As a species we're fundamentally insane. Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up ways to kill one another.Why do you think we invented politics and religion.

Hey xin - I got two chain saws ;D.
When you come upon a track or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.

My name's Jim,  I live in Hillsborough, N.C.. Been shooting a bow since I was 7.  My granddad used to take me bow & arrow golfing when he played regular golf.  I bowshot a groundhog when I was 9. It took me years to take a deer with an arrow, but the next season, I tagged out before the first gun went off.  I love being in the woods with a stick & string before all the animals are stirred up, there's nothing like it...even if I never get to draw. My best arrow-killed buck scores 114+.

Been knapping for 20 years off & on, but part of that I didn't know what I was doing. Even though my points have killed deer, I have never shot a deer with a point I made.

I was hit by a drunk driver who ran a red light on 4-21-07 and T-boned my side of the car which almost killed me.  I had a traumatic brain injury, several broken bones, & the vision in my left eye is still off.  My left shoulder was injured badly enough that I can't draw any of my bows and I am just getting my knapping skills back (I wasn't a great knapper to start with).  But I am lucky to still be here and happy to be drawing breath.  I will have to have surgery on my left shoulder in the next few months & then maybe I can shoot a bow again.  If not, I had a great time when I could.

BTW the guy who hit me got a 3 month jail sentence suspended if he did 72 hours of community service and passed an alchohol treatment class... Be careful, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Make sure you tell the ones who matter to you that they do.

Jim
