Re: Woodland archery - what's the longest shot you get?

Honest...if you want something relatively inexpensive to get started with in shorter bows, Bows of the Risen Son makes rattan bows that shoot fairly well in very small packages. I particularly like that their product helped me avoid laminated moderns and fiberglass without sacrificing the small siz...

Re: Woodland archery - what's the longest shot you get?

On this subject, I have a very nice long bow, but am thinking of getting a small hunting bow.

Any suggestions on style and source?

Re: Woodland archery - what's the longest shot you get?

My stance on the decision to choose one over the other, bow over spear, ultimately stems from the description of Aragorn as a traveler and Huntsman. He was equipped for travel first and foremost, and self-preservation. Only in the context of armed companies, both the Grey company and Faramir’s Rang...

Re: I Climbed Weathertop (Almost)

Beautiful photos. You've really sparked my wanderlust.

Luckily, headed on a short vacation to the forests and lakes of Michigan's Upper Peninsula soon.

Re: 2018-19 Hawking Season

How does this even work? You see a hawk (and determine from its size or feathers that it is a juvenile?) and do a magic dance to make it come to you so that you can put a bag on its head and bind it? You drive aroun in a van that has 'free rabbit entrails' on the side? I remembered, Greg answered a...

Re: First Trek of Fall, '18

Oh that looks like a grand time! ... the streambed looks familiar. I take it that's a regular haunt? Most of the hills in this part of the world (from Wisconsin and Michigan all the way down to Kentucky) are usually terminal moraines- the detritus bulldozed at the front edge of the glaciers and the...

Re: First Trek of Fall, '18

Nice! Where was this at?

I can't wait for solid fall weather- I've got a dozen projects at the Inn that I've been avoiding due to the heat and humidity.

Re: Giant Celtic Cross Found Hidden in Irish Forest

A few years back, they found a similar thing in the forest in Germany.

Unfortunately, it was aspens planted in the shape of swastikas on a hillside covered in pines.

Re: Dwarven Bounder?

Before the modern method of dividing real estate on a grid, the method was known as 'metes and bounds.' Some US states still have such measurements from colonial times. "Beating the bounds" was a way for mostly illiterate communities to become aware of real estate divisions and to pass alo...

Re: A bit of Shire goodness

I've heard of the "Game of Thrones" cookbook, and mostly heard good things about it. I have to work on my pie dough, though. When I make chicken pot pies, I usually cheat with store-bought dough. I have that cookbook! I'll have to post some recipes and my results. The Honeyed Chicken reci...

Re: New Tolkien exhibit in Oxford and beautiful catalog book

I got the catalog book yesterday. It's a beauty, with high resolution reproductions of letters, maps, and drawings on card-stock paper pages. One thing that surprised me are reproductions of newspaper pages that Tolkien doodled on with colored pens. Very psychedelic. The book, shipping, and handling...
