Target archery is seeing how far away you can get and still hit the bull's eye. Bowhunting is seeing how close you can get and never miss your mark.

Go Walter Go! [clapper]
You may have learned how to make a bow, but you taught a lot of us something that takes a whole lot more heart.

Thanks, Ted, for sharing the story with us, I only wish it were longer, with more pictures. [Smile]

Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.
