    My Widow finally arrived.....

    The man in the big brown truck showed up today...Finally! I ordered this SA II about 10 weeks ago....I swear it felt like I ordered it a year ago. I built a doz cedar arrows for it and was pleased to find they fly great out of the bow. I'm not planning on retiring the Outback, but it's always...

    Pear wood slate.

    I cut a pear tree down about a year ago at my in-law's. I figured I'd try to make a call out of a piece and see how it went. It ended up looking really cool! The other pic is of the striker I ended up turning for the walnut call I posted before.

    First completed slate call

    I have been a little slow at getting my wingbone calls done for everyone that sent me wings, due to my broken hand.( Sorry about the delay guys and girl:)) It's getting so that I can use all the fingers on my right hand without tearing up, so I'll get on them ASAP! Turning calls on a lathe...

    The lathe works...

    My wife bought me a lathe for my B-Day...I've been wanting to make slate calls and needed a lathe to do it. I turned my first two pots for the calls today, they need a lot of sanding yet and a finish applied but I think they turned out pretty well. The dark pot was turned out of a piece of...

    My wife lost a bet...

    I ordered a Black Widow SAII a few weeks ago. Of coarse dropping about a grand on stick and a string never goes over well with a non-archer...especially if they are married to you . While I wait for the bow to arrive, I've been battling with the decision of what arrow material to use. I...

    Feather splicing success

    I read a how-to article on splicing colors into a feather and figured I'd give it a shot..... wow, what a blast! The options are endless. I think it's a great way to put a personal touch on arrows you fletch yourself. I put and arrow togather with black fletching with yellow spliced into it...

    Stick Bow sites??

    I'm wondering if you guys know of any other good traditional bow sites. I've looked at tradbow.com., stickbow.com, etc. You guys know of any other good ones?

    Fletch making tutorial

    I thought posting this may help any of you that wanted to make fletching out of the birds you are harvesting. I always wanted to sit down and do it, but up until a few weeks ago, never did. If you are an archer and fletch your own arrows, you know how expensive real turkey feathers can be if...

    New Wingbones

    I had three buddies come out first season and I made calls for them, each from their own bird. I kept the other wings for my calls. The collection:

    So I'm just sitting there....

    .......at my computer, at home, in the middle of Sioux City, Ia. I'm on the lower level, next to the bay window that looks over our front yard. I catch movement out of the corner of my eye and this is what I see......unreal! ( I suppose I couldn't say I had a peeping "tom" looking in my window...

    Make your own fletching?

    Just wondering how many of you guys make your own fletching. I had 3 buddies come out first season, we all tagged out. In addition to making wingbone calls for everyone, I'm screwing around with making my own fletching out of the primary feathers from the birds. Just curious to see how many...

    Great turkey marinade

    The bird I took yesterday was grilled last night...WOW! Try this out, it was great! Enough teriyaki sauce to cover the filleted turkey breasts when put in a Tupperware container large enough to accommodate both breasts side by side. ( wordy enough for you??) Soy sauce: 1/3 the volume...

    New wingbone calls started

    I am in the process of making my buddies wingbone calls from the birds they shot when they were here first season. Here's a pic of all three rough-fit. The joints need to be apoxy'd, the mouthpieces tuned and they all need to painted. The call on the right was made from a jake that was taken, so...

    Wanting to get into traditional archery.

    Hey guys, I've always been a "new tech" sort of archer....always bought the cutting edge stuff, always tried to break the sound barrier with my arrows. The older I get, the more I think about "how it used to be done" rather than "what's coming next." What stick bows have you guys had luck...

    I couldn't believe it.....

    I read on another forum, something I didn't know existed. Rifle seasons for turkeys. I'm sure some of you guys live in a state that allows it, but personally, I have never heard of such a thing. I read it and had to stop for a second to compose myself. I might be the only guy in the world...

    More Bird Pics...

    I noticed you guys liked the pictures Like I said, I always take the camera with me when I go out to my ground. I figured I'd post a few more: This one was of a hen group. The road you see them walking on was worn by my truck. It's the ridge I drive on to get to my "glassing" place. ( ask...

    Bachelor Group.

    I always take my camera when I go out to our property. I was on the way to my pistol range last Thursday and caught these guys milling around ( I had the 70-300 telephoto lens on , I was about 80 yards away at the time)

    Grand Slam Aspirations....

    I've been thinking about this for a long time...What a great goal: to harvest all the turkey species living here in the US. I'm seriously thinking of making it one of those "must do before I die" things. Any of you guys achieved it? If not, how close are you?

    Reducing passthroughs on birds

    I look in admiration when I see hunting videos showing guys taking turkeys with a bow, and seeing the arrow stop, in the bird, dumping all it's energy on target. The next scene in the video is always the hunter walking back to the blind, with his bird AND his arrow! I have yet to take a...
