Here's me and my Pop after a little Osage harvest. I got 6 bows out of those logs. I lost my Pop in 2007.

Hey Kid, any harvest is a trophy. Osage is the best in my opinion, but don't limit yourself, experiment with ash and hickory. And keep the screen name, Joni's right, you'll always be a kid.

BadKarma,

Sorry to hear about your dad.

What I'm about to say is going to sound a little "out there" and, perhaps a step too far, but if you really love bow hunting, then there is a method of drawing a longbow that requires very little, if any, muscle tension (which should meet the demands of your torn shoulder cuffs). Get yourself a used copy of a 1948 book by Eugen Herrigel call "Zen in the Art of Archery". In this book, which is short, you'll find a method of drawing a longbow that may work for you. I know that recurves and compounds have considerably more tension in them than a longbow, but I think you might at least want to give this book a look. If you can't find a copy, then I can lend you mine. Just a thought.

Pocono,

Thanks for the suggestion. I had looked that up at the library and found out I suffered from another malady, Gorillaitus. Thats when you don't feel comfortable unless your shooting a bow with a pull only you and King Kong can pull. I've always shot bows over 65lbs. And I know that a 45lbs will get the job done, I just don't have the confidence to take a shot at a deer. It's a mental block that I just can't seem to get around.

But thanks anyway. It seems as though the trout have taken up the slack in causing me even more frustration than the deer ever did.

Hi Jebson,

Looks like your picture didn't work. Here is a link to a FAQ that tells you how to post a picture on NAFFF.
