Single Bevel Damascus (finished)
« on: March 02, 2008, 08:47:00 AM »
My Quebec Bear Quest 08 silver bullet for spring bears.  I didn't etch it as it came out with a nice suttle appearance.  It has a 25 degree edge and finished at the weight I normally shoot...225gr.  Now I just need to get going on a beautiful Osage character stave John Scifres sold me...got til end of June to complete my hunting attire.  Doc

The bears would stay in the dens until July if they had internet access Doc.

Beautiful!  That will sure get the job done on a blackie.  What kind of arrow is going to guide it?

Whip, It will be a wood arrow now that Woody has shown me be how to mount them.  With an Osage selfbow, just one step up the evolutionary path from last years stone point  ;)  Doc

kennym, I normally shoot 200-235 grain up front.  I'll have to see how it flyes.  But for Bears, they will usually be close and drop off shouldn't be a big problem.  The extra punch should be worth it.

Way to go Doc!  I'm sure any bear would be proud to succumb to that tip.  Great work as usual.

That is a nice looking head. I've always liked the look of Damascus.

Nice looking head Doc. Interested in seeing the pics when you mount it.
