Obsidian for the win
« on: October 18, 2017, 02:22:00 PM »
Ive knocked 2 down so far this season.  Forresters hard maple shafts and obsidian points i knapped myself.  all sinew and pine pitch bound.  water proofed the sinew with a little titebond III.   One deer i used my homemade hickory longbow.  the other was with my brackenbury shadow.  

update....sorry cant get the pics for ya.  new a new image hosting site since photobucket went to pot

Impressive! Self made points. Not to mention a nice deer too!
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.
