Flatstick gets lucky 2003
« on: December 20, 2003, 10:36:00 PM »
Both deer were taken with a sinew backed osage flatbow, river cane arrows, and sinew wrapped trade points. The 115# doe was taken on the evening of 11/ 8/ 03 at a distance of 6yds.

     

     

The 190# 8pt was taken at 5yds ( I like'um close! ) on the morning of 11/11/03. This buck was tending a doe and trying to keep 3 other bucks away from her for about a half hour before she lead him past me ,, it was quite a show !  I had almost not gone hunting that morning because I had the flu all night,,I even laid in the front seat of my truck when I got to the farm trying to decide if I should hunt or not. I guess sometimes not being too smart, leads to being lucky : )

Flatstick,

Cool pictures!  What an accomplishment to take those deer with primitive equipment and at such close range.  Way to Go, Bro!

Flatstick,

The bag that is hanging around you in the photos is it similiar to a possibles bag like Blackpowder hunters use?  I am presently hunting with a grey military shoulder bag, I think it is a gas mask bag.  I have been wanting to make a bigger more functional bag from leather or wool.  Is it possible you could email me pictures of yours?

Longbows and Short Shots,
