Looking forward to today Craig is coming over and we are going to start building new bows. We are suppose to get some snow and it is still gun season so it is a great time to start a new project.

Sounds like fun.
My picture file was too big.
I need to figure out how to reduce the pixels.

Forgot to mention that the bow Cody made for his friend for Christmas was made from a roughed out bow that JW brought as a prize during the first IAJAM. This bow blank was won by Beadman and then months later was given to me. I had it for a couple years and then gave it to Cody.

Our group named by JW "Sons of Archery, Bois d'arc Originals" or Primitive Branch of Flint Creek Bow Hunting Club are going to help host the 3rd annual 2014 Iowa Jamboree here at the farm. We have plans to provide camping on a new site if the weather will cooperate and the brush can been cleared. A road access has been put in by the county and was bladed before winter. The club members have been a great help and keep coming up with great ideas like a  canoe shoot during the 3d shoot. What fun. Dates are 21&22 of March.

Great fun yesterday. ..Paul came out to fish and check the depth of the pond on the new ground. After fishing we hunted the back side of the farm. We pulled a new stand in with the ice fishing gear and I carried it up the valley to nice spot with good activity but saw no deer last night. Going to give it a go again this morning.
