Well I was going to do a string jig but plans change my guy may be getting a HHB longbow I am working on its at floor tiller right now . Not sure what weight he would prefer so maybe just shoot for high 40s or 50 pounds I guess.

Suffered a bad case of sticker shock while up hunting, saw what could have been a bow rack, looked like wood, over $50!!  It ain't in the bundle, but it gave me an idea!  Looks like some raw materials in the bundle, as well!

A bow rack sounds like a great idea Hawk. I need one of those bad!

In addition to the smoked trout I've got vacuum sealed in the freezer and a few specialty supplies I won't mention I was thinking I'd send my victim a short ambush-style yew bow I made a while back. It's a spunky little shooter.

Won't hear any complaints from me on anything I've heard so far. I was given a couple of deer hides from some friends of mine. Once yheyre worked up and dried, I'll cut out some backing strips then use the 'scraps' to make some canteens and other stuff with. Probably some lacing to start with. Then I'll figure out some other stuff too. I'll probably put a small bottle or two or pepper powder in also. Who knows what else will find its way in there. Probably a bit of verdegris fletching glue.

Sorry Rob I haven't had any time for any personal projects. I'm hoping that will change and things will slow down a bit in a couple weeks.

I finally settled on an idea and got started this weekend. What do you "buy" the guy that has everything?

I've got a couple deer hides fleshed out and soaking in ash water with a couple more ready to do the same. So getting close to some rawhide. Trapping and fur water season just opened so it's time to get some steel out later this morning when I get tired of waiting for some does to show up. So hopefully I'll have a pelt or two that'll go along also.

Anybody mind if Santy Claus dropped off a half dozen 11/32 douglas fir arras? All matched to 50# on the nutz and within 10 grains as bare shafts. The flu-flu's have blunts glued on and the standard fletch are un-cut.


P.S.

I stand for the anthem, probably obvious my color choice :)
