Frank, Yes I probably will use it some come this fall. Really looking forward to some close-up encounters with deer.


Jonathan, Do a google search on Ghillie's, I know there's places where you can buy just materials.

Joe, It's not bad at all to shoot with it on. Just need to keep material short or non at all anywhere there's a chance to catch the string.

Installment 5:

Ghillie'n up my bow....

First off, as you can see the finish is shot on "Timex", these pix were taken a few days ago. In the next day or two, I'll add some camo tape to the limbs and back of the riser. Also have an idea to add a little burlap to the limbs for a little more camo.


Here you can see I've tied strips of burlap, strung burlap, and jute randomly on any part of the riser where it would stay in place...

To cover the quiver hood with material, i first tied some netting to the hood, then tied in my material...

This part was inspired by Joey Buchanan "Joebuck" and the turkey he killed last week. Joey was using a modified "Hidden Draw" bow blind on his bow. That got me thinking that I needed to come up with something similar.

I wanted it to be easily removable, not "shoot thru"(small hole in the middle to look and shoot thru), and lightweight.

This might be the most effective part of the whole "system"...

Still need to work out a few little bugs, but it works great to hide my draw arm!

Great detailed work as per usual Curt.. I'm sure the birds will be in trouble come your season opening. Mid May in NY?

I am after Turkeys in the morning another spring without a blind... I'm hunting my ASAT Ultimate 3D in the morning.

We will see... [banghead]

Figures. I just got a bow I thought I didn't want a quiver on. Pretty slick.

I had a blast this morning. I called in a nice longbeard to about 25 yds. I was standing leaning on one small tree and looking around another about the same size on my other side. I had buck brush in front of me but nothing behind me. I thought he'd come in that direction but no...lol he came from behind me. I was holding my bow as still as I could but I noticed the broadhead was moving as was my heart...lol He saw something he didn't like.

I had a blast! Maybe tomorrow. I won't be wearing the leafy stuff, it'll be back to my ghuillie.
God bless,Mudd
