Southwest Montana, staked out a prairie spring, sat in old Indian hunting pit

[Tried to size pics down--hope I did it right.]

. About 15 yards with a 45# Savannah (my draw is 29.5"), Grizzly single-bevel BHs + 150-gr Woodywt (lots of FOC), cedar arrows. Walked 200-yards through sagebrush, fell over dead. Here's the arrow, ivories, and a jasper flake from the pit:

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.

Congratulations on the elk. That is a great accomplishment with a bow and wood arrow. Lots of waiting and hoping. Been there, done that.
Very nice rack. Glad you scored.
Where do you get the Woodywts for wood arrows?
I make my cane and wood very heavy.

I've heard it said that Christianity is a crutch. To me, it's a walking stick to use on the path of life.
