 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

I finaly got a chance to do this challenge after getting some more rocks the other day.
I enjoyed doing it, but learnt that I aint as fast as I thought I could be and didn't get the notches deep as I wanted them and I didn't get to touch up the edges with pressure either. I set a timer for fifteen minutes and would stop to take pictures each time the timer ran out then I would do the next fifteen minutes, so all together with pics this is a little over an hours worth of work.
Here's the rock

final 15 min.
I knew I was running out of time so I just took a couple base thinning flakes and went to notching aggressively as fast as I could and the timer ran out before I was ready.
This was the most fun I've had in a while and I want to do it again.

You chippers are turning out some nice work for the time spent. In a few days, I'll give it a try. I have never tried to be fast and usually make slow progress. I do OK till I get it almost finished, and then spend that much more time on the final touches. I bet the ancient people did not do that.

1442 - That is just awesome!  Good for you.  I still wouldn't be able to make a point like that in a week!  Great contribution for this.
I'm glad it was so much fun for you.
