The Iowan Path
« on: December 17, 2013, 08:41:09 am »
The lowan Path is a post about our group and what we are doing in this area. Our numbers keep growing and now is above 10. I have to say first that the Iowan path stated with a visit to Twin Oaks in TN. Seeing those guys passing on the tradition of primitive archery inspired me to help others in this region learn the primitive skills that I learned from so many of you on this site at the classic and on this site.  I started by helping others with one caveat, that they return the good will by helping pass on the tradition of primitive archery. So I am hoping to keep this post active so others can see what is going on in Iowa.

Here are couple  pictures from other posts of what we've been doing. Craig is spining arrows and Paul is weighting them. The other picture is from a meeting over the weekend. Gary and Steve are in the back I am on the left and Craig, Tim and Chris are to my left.

Steve and Cody came out and worked on their bows this afternoon and I had some time to finish an arrow for my new bow that I have named "temptation". I named her that because the wood makes me sick but I like building anyway.
