David, Mickey does great work. His attention to detail in everything he does is awesome. And he is a heck of a guy too. He just can't hit a running rabbit.

No Chad, I think you and David was spreading it a little thick ha ha, but thanks for the kind words guys. I enjoy making things because I've never been very good at it. Finally after decades of trying I can craft things that are respectable.

Ok, Chad, maybe the shooting like Howard Hill was a little over the top but the rest is spot on. I can still remember your advice to Dianne when she wanted to make her first bow (which isn't done yet BTW..the slacker)..."USE THE BANDSAW, DON'T LET HIM MAKE YOU DO IT ALL WITH HAND TOOLS LIKE HE DID ME"  ha ha ha ha

David, Yes it is. Mickey, tell Dianne to get on the ball. If she would like, i'll come down so when osage shavings get tracked through the house she can blame it on me like you do!!

Cool! I work with a couple of fellas that continually harass me about my choice of hunting equipment. Their favorite jab is (So, I suppose you are gonna whittle down a stick, put a string on it, and use a branch for an arrow!) I just tell them that I'm not that advanced yet! They just give me a dumb look and walk away!

LOL Good comeback 2-big, I'll have to remember that one.

I got's me a dilema here. About 2 months ago I straightened, filed the nodes and plugged the ends on 1/2 dozen cane shafts and for the life of me I can't find where I put them LOL

That ever happen to anyone else?

Mickey,

   Haven't straightened and lost them. But I have got a dozen cane shafts sitting in my garage just waiting for me to work on them. I'd forgot about them until I saw this thread.
I better get to work I got to make some hunting arrows. October is coming.

Uh yea Jason. get on em! In primitive arrow making terms hunting season is right around the corner!

I tell ya it is driving me NUTS. I know they are banded with a tan rubber band, I had 2 picked out for Bro Randy and 4 for me. I know at one time they were sitting on the fireplace mantle but I have searched the house 3 times now without any luck. Arrgghhh

I ain't got em lil buddy!  :bigsmyl:  As bad as you are about putting everything back in it's place, i'm surprised you ever lose anything except your hair. Did ya accidently use them when making arrows for other people?

Chad, I'll bet that's it. Mickey is too generous for his own good.

Well boys, I'm giving up and just forgetting about them. Durn nice shafts too, and I had them "super straight". Maybe then they will appear some day. I know walking around and looking over and under things is only frustrating me. ha ha

I've done 2 straightening jobs on the shafts at the beginning of this thread and they are looking real good. One more sessions and we should have some arrow material! I'll try and not lose these   :knothead:

If it were my house I'd be asking my wife what she did with them.And of course she say "I didn't touch them" until we found them and she remembered moving them. LOL

Mickey I'll come help you look if you want. Just don't mind all those trips I make to my truck to check for them.   :D

Mickey, on the cane shafts how far can you work the nodes down without overly weakening the shafts?
