The first time "Hope" went out in the field was Friday evening. I was paired up with Dick Easter and we hunted an area of the ranch that had a couple of low lying spots that looked right for game. There were lots of sign, but to make a long story short, no dice. We saw one nice size hog and one javie shortly after the hog but they were too far away to stalk. Both just crossed the sendero and disappeared into the prickly pear. As the day came to a close, we started seeing cottontails come out on the sendero and with a borrowed ace hex tipped cedar, I took my shot. Here is the result.

What a great start for both of these bows! I expect them to be bloodied many more times before my chance comes, and look forward to seeing the stories here.

The bow will be in its sock...and the matching knife is slid in the arm guard.

Wow! What a great looking package.

Terry, I'd like to remind all the participants that the Bow Bolt is machined to very fine tolerances (.ooo5" at some points) and making sure it is completely clean before assembly is very important.
Thanks,
Craig

Hey Terry,
You threw me off for a few minutes,, I read the second thread first and then the origional thread, this one.. At first, I thought 2 gals were headed around the country hunting with different Trad. Gangers. I thought that was pretty neat, however, when i got to the part about them being autioned off next year, I got as excited as a 59 year old can get..... I thought this archery thing reall does bring folks closer together!!!!!!

Now that I'm all straightened out, Mark and Sandy, those are beautiful bows and how nice of you folks to send them on such a journey..

Mr. Walker, I do indeed like your hat!!! Jim

That is one beautiful package!!! [thumbsup] Great job putting it all together. The only thing I see that may be missing is a box of excuses for misses. [Big Grin]

I am all ready thinking about set ups for next Spring when Miss Faith and I will will try to seduce an old tom into shooting range. Come on April!!!

Thanks to all for each one's part in making this happen. Awesome idea!

Al
