Been off the mainland for a bit. Was at the cabin on the west end of Oahu. Got to shoot with my old hunting buddy from Lanaii for a day. We did not hunt with all the fuss about the China Virus. Should have brought the bows to the river mouth here in the picture as there was a nice school of Papio feeding right at the mouth.

Photo of Cabin with the pig and goat country up high in background and then the other view looking toward New Zealand 5000 NM away. Guys were hunting pigs and deer season was open on Lanaii. Wish I had another week to go archery hunt there.

Hawaiian TP. We ran out.

The new 2020 hunt bow is about complete. Been shooting it in and tweeking the sight window. This was a belly split off a very large Hedge Apple. I got it from D'Wayne and Jamie at Buck Hollow as a gift payback for a stave I gave D'wayne made his Mojo bow out of. This is that very heavy dense dark orange wood. Added a little Shadua to the handle.

Hits hard for  a 46@28" 70" been shooting 200-250 grn broadheads on a 30" 23/64ths shafts running 650grns.

The neat thing on this hunter is that the lower limb is 3 rings down from the upper. You can see in the picture of the grip area the rings.
This happen because the lower limb has a big V trench (concave, more like a Vee) area where the upper limb ring was compromised so bad in the lower limb I had to keep going till I found a solid one.

Aloha, nice looking bow man. That's my style hunting bow right there. Simple and straight.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Looks like life could be worse, Shawn.  I like the green tp.  I think I'm going to be glad I never cleaned out my corn patch, before this is all over...

Think im gonna go put 25 young squirrels in the ice box.

Oh, that new Hunt Rig has Gaboon tips and hand rubbed wax and oil funish. Probably the best shooting selfbow i have ever scratched out with heavy arrows. Just a laser.

Took the new 70" Hunter out on the 25 Target practice range with a 600grn 30" arrow today with Pappy and Bart. Shot OK for first ten. After I settled in with I did light it up on the last 15. Dont think I shot any 8's. All good realistic shots on deer sized targets 13-24yds I figged. Bow just really heavy dense wood and very solid in follow thru. Arrow just never moves left or right much point of aim. Going to love seeing the first ACE 160 or 200grn arrow dissappear into hair.

Be Turkey time soon. Have a nice 190grn BH set up 50lb spine shafts off my wrecking bow that's going to get a workout. Still have my hunt clothes in deer shed hanging with the SB horde. Prolly work on my ghillie net and get it spruced up a bit. Have 3-4 nice gobs roosting right behind me in big sycamores hanging over river.
Ticks are out here already with this warm weather. What else is new!
