I decided she needed a little more color if she were going to grace one of Ted's arrows.

 

I mounted her with dental floss just to see how well she spun...perfect.  Last summer I had picked up a 1/2 dozen Raptor arrows on the blanket.  I couldn't believe my luck in finding my friend's perfect footed arrows   :thumbsup:  What's even funnier, there was a broken shaft at the TX Sweat that Ted had used on his bowyer hunt...same arrow!  Gotta be some mojo there...I hope  :pray:  Doc

Buckhammer,  
Those are just tempering colors.  She'll lose those when the action gets heavy  :)

I remember your excitement when you found those arrows, Doc. I remember you saying "It'll take just the right point to finish them off". I'd say you "found" the right point. Very nice my friend!

owlbait, I use a three arrow bow quiver bear hunting.  Right now this forged head and Woody's knife river flint head will be in my quiver, unless I can get Woody to knap me a Green head to match my arrows   ;)  One needs to be color coordinated in the bear woods!  Doc

Jeff,

Neat head, my friend. I have your head you sent me in my quiver....just waiting for the right piggie to come along.

"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."

Jeff,hope you didn't take that wrong. I love close shots,I meant it would penetrate like crazy!!  Should have said just that!  :knothead:  

Please tell us how it works when you get to use it!!  :thumbsup:
Stay sharp, Kenny.
