Nice looking bundles of shafts! The other pics got " Bucketed"!  Sounds like you need to have a "hog hunting party"! (SH) (-_) (=) -C-!
Life is far too serious to be taken that way!

I'm at a phase where I decide to go shoot my newly made arrows. I get all geared up and after a few shots, I pop over to the shed and start tinkering with them...this one needs sanding, this one needs straightening. And then I decide to start a new one, and before long its dark and I only shot a few times.

I kinda like making arrows more than I like making bows. Surprisingly, I found that using a metal scraper instead of a belt sander is faster and less hazardous (to me and the arrows) when stripping the bark and shaping them.

Also, my 3D hog target ate one of my copper points.
