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 size...

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 Range...

Re: 2018-19 Hawking Season

Tameness is always encouraged, but they aren’t domesticate-able...they don’t have enough parts of the brain to get past instinct. They get docile with time and handling, but like captive zoo animals, something can always go wrong. My first bird gave me scars on my right hand I still have today. With...

Re: Middle Earth Surcote, Ver. 2.0

History wins. The Ithilien film surcotes aren’t based on a historical pattern, and come loaded with problems. Figures!

One week down, and we’re starting to respond favorably to food.

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? You know...you aren’t TOO far...

2018-19 Hawking Season

Sealed the deal on the little guy yesterday out in the country on the way back from a job. We’ve had to take the past two seasons off due to moving and life, but after a summer’s worth of construction to have the necessary housing facilities again and a small mountain of paperwork, we’re back at it!...

Re: Pacific Yew "Huntsman" Bow Build-Along

Between planing on a few other pieces I’m not at liberty to share about, I got some significant shaping done on this guy. We’re taking the belly in and tapering towards the ends. At present, it has the SHAPE, at least, of a bow. Need to thin the center a bit more to get it bending there since this w...

Re: Pacific Yew "Huntsman" Bow Build-Along

I got my centerline marked in with string earlier this week, and marked in a grip-at-center and tip width straddling that centerline. Now I’ve got some glue setting on another project and can do some side tapering. It always amazes he how precisely one can work to an exact line using hand tools. I. ...

Actually, never been here before, but it looks eerily similar to the one I used to frequent at my old house about twenty minutes from here.

Re: First Trek of Fall, '18

Snapsack’s got the dry goods that are normally in my bedroll inside right now. Just a smidge on the bulky side, comfort-wise. I left the bow to avoid accusations of hunting. Preserve doesn’t say you can’t carry, but I didn’t want any hippies pointing fingers or calling DNR. My new hawk enclosure was...
