Well its opening day of gun season here in Michigan and I had to miss heading north to deer camp with my dad and brothers because everyone in my house was sick. But I managed to get out in the woods this morning behind my house. It was crisp and cold and snowing with barely a breeze. Turkeys were everywhere coming down from the trees as soon as it got light. About a half hour after shooting light a doe came by trailing this buck. I stopped him at about fifteen yards in a small gap in the brush and let him have it! I hit him through the lungs and he charged off forty yards into the brush and I heard him go down. I shot him with a hickory self bow 43#@28" and a arrow I made from a bamboo garden stake, fletched with turkey feathers from a turkey I killed last fall, and tipped with a broadhead I made out of a pounded flat spoon. It was opening day of gun season here and hunting goes drastically down hill for the next two weeks so I was happy to fill my tag even tho its just a little guy.  -  -

That's outstanding, Lee. Lots of personal medicine in this one.

Very nice... deer camp is a great time, but getting one down with everything hand made is really special!

Congrats

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

Good job with all homemade equipment, may be small racked but it will be well remembered.
