I think so bud,will know better tomorrow.Looking forward to it.

By the way,I forgot to talk about the bow that David(huntrdfk) made for Pop Leonard.David e mailed me at least a month before the hunt.With the idea that he wanted to make a selfbow for Shawns Dad.I was to be the spy and get all the info I could about him(he knew Shawn and I are close).I told him that he was left handed,that was the big thing to remember.Then I did the spy work and started to beat around the bush for the other important info.Comfortable draw wt. and length,his name,and anything else that might be important to know.

He started sending pics as the bow progressed over the next couple weeks.I asked David if it was alright if I made some arrows for the bow.Of course I waited till the last minute.Got a hold of Joe skipp and he had some pre finished shafts that were the right spine.So I put a simple crest on them,Wrote " For Jake By Curt C. and Joe S., Bunny hunt'05",put 2 more coats of sealer and fletched them up.

I was very excited about David giving him the bow.Which he did when everyone got together for lunch Saturday.Shawns Mom said to me "Curt,you know how Jake is,he will teasure that bow!" .
I'm sure he will!!

This was completely Davids idea.David,you are the man bro [Not Worthy] .I'm just glad I could be a small part of it.

To David and Curt, not only did it mean a lot to Dad. It meant a lot to me, I really appreciate the fact you guys thought of him, he is a tough old bird with a big heart. I went up yesterday and he was out shootin' the new bow and that is odd, as he very seldom shoots anymore. He may launch a few before hunting season starts and that it. Thanks Again!! Shawn

Shawn,I know how Dads can be LOL!!! We had a 3D shoot/Pig roast at our bow club and I invited my Dad. Last summer I had picked up a 35# Ben Pearson solid fiberglass longbow. When my Dad came down for the pig roast we went out in the backyard with that bow and some arrows,I told him to shoot 3under and kinda gunbarrel it. He did very well at about 10-15 yards and said he would like to try shooting the coarse.(I was hoping he would!!!) My Dad and I and my 2 boys went up to the club and the 4 of us had a great time. My Dad shot a 94 out of 300,not bad figuring he had NEVER shot a bow before!!!!! When we finished shooting my Dad opened his car trunk and carefully laid the bow,quiver of arrows,arm guard, and finger tab, inside and gentlely closed the trunk. I'll never forget the way Dad looked at me and said "That was fun!!! Let's Eat!!!

Dad has been shooting his bow and says that he is looking forward to more 3D shoots with me and his grandsons!!!!!!!

Happy Hunting!!! Chuck

Shawn,

I enjoyed making the bow for your dad, and am glad that he likes it. It is the least I could do for what you and your family did over the weekend, and still don't feel like I did enough. Curt was a bigger help in this than he is letting on, I was worried about arrows from the beginning, he jumped to the front immediately asking if he could make some arrows for the bow, which was great. Then he had to do all the behind the scenes work to get draw length, weight and such. It was really a pleasure to do this with Curt, knowing where the bow and arrows would end up, and thanks to Joe also. ( I truly enjoyed meeting and and speaking with you Joe).
I am reserving a spot for next years hunt here and now, so be forewarned!!

David

That's great that your Dad was out shooting !!!!
I'm still trying to get my father to pickup his recurve again. He came to Denton Hill last year but just walked a course with me NO BOW. I do think he may have been bitten buy the bug .
