 squirrel arra = any arra in my quiver when there is a squirrel about  
That's my definition NOW Meathook. I changed arrows once last year to shoot at a squirrel and wouldn't ya know it, I blew an opportunity at shootin' the biggest buck of my life. AND the skwerl got away too!

Calvin,

Judging from the position (and path) of the arrow, I'm not quite sure by what was meant by "nutted", or should it be "de-nutted"?

snakeeater...I believe the story was...

the tree rat eats nuts...hence "nutter" (kinda like calling your spotted dog...spot? haha)

and the end of the arra is a nut.

therefore, using southern logic, it becomes by default a..."nutted nutter."

You should hear how they describe..."relations"

My wife's family is from West - by God - Virginia.  Let me have a crack at it.

"Cousin" - any young relative eligible for marriage.  (Related term: "Uncle" - a more formal name for "Dad")

"Spect" - to think, as in "I spect so."

"Mess" - large number difficult to count to; as in over six.  "Gimme a mess of them crawdads"

"Owh Son" - Expression of pleasure.  Translates to: "I just ate something or saw someone pretty nice."

"NASCAR" - something like the New Joisey Turnpike, but all going in one direction and with rules.

"Learn ya" - I believe this one is something like "I'm about to beat the crap out of you."

I'm waiting for the National Geographic issue where they send a team to Texas.  Should be informative.

A couple of years ago I visited a Swedish archery website to browse around. I understand what's being said on this thread almost as much as I did that Swedish site.

There's English, and then there's everything else.

Hoosier-ese is very simple. All words are one or two syllables. ....IE: construction = struct-un,
Alluminum = lume-num, Government = gummit,
deer = dur,
beer = byur, ect.
Is it too late to be what I could have been?

back to the skweerl arraws.  Jason an I made some AWLLsome arraws for the Jim Hamm survival hunt and I'm using them tomorrow for anythng that moves and is smaller then a armadillo.  They are homemade maple shafts (culls) with self nocks and full height turkey feathers 5" long.  The points are fence staples set like you would a stone point.

They fly true and kill anything they hit.

Most of my skwirl arrahs are raminwood.For fletching I use left over pieces from chopping out fletches for my hunting arrows.Anything 4" or longer.Trim length to 4" and cut to 3/4" high.I use as a 4 fletch set up to make sure they have enough stability.For tips I use steel blunts.Some tips I've cut a slot in and drilled slight indents on the sides and inserted a bleeder blade.

Cost per arrow is less than $1.00 each.

No 6 shot, bill, but a hillb..er, hill friend in MD tells me that he can get good groups with his arras at 75 yards ifn' he sticks em down the short-bbl .410 he had and takes the shot outa the shell.  Said the feathers ain't worth much after one shot, cause they're pretty much just toast, but he swears he can keep 3 in a pie plate at that range!  :eek:    That outa nut something with them sticks of Jon's!
The words "Child" and "terminal illness" should never share the same sentence! Those who care-do, others question!
