I shoot both left and right handed, depending which way the wind blows up my skirt.  I like the old cordovan style tabs, but they are one sided and too thin most of the time.  What I need is one that has big enough holes to fit over a glove, maybe glue a left and hand a right hand cordovan together, so I can use the same one for both sides and beef up the thickness at the same time.
Looking around, I do not see any of the old two hole tabs available anywhere.  I don't like the single finger loop tabs.

Made one, tried it.  Nope, I am sticking with my American Leathers gloves.

 :biglaugh: Pavan are you shooting the gloves with the nylon covers or the leather with the inserts inside?

I just scored a real nice Jerry Hill quiver that could use some sprucing up. What you be a good conditioner that wouldn't come off on the clothes?

I always use Neets oil.  Put on everything even on the inside, until it soaks through, for a time it comes off.  I call those ratty 'T' shirts painting shirts.  I tried the snow seal stuff, but well it may be better for water repellency, I do not think it is as good for conditioning a quiver to get it to conform to my back.  some use olive oil, but that will still stain into a light colored shirt.

I like Montana Pitch Blend--does a nice job on the leather and smells so good.  :saywhat:

okay, i have had some of that. I am terrible with names, but my nose remembers things real well.  Some leather conditioners can be hard on certain types of stitching.  What works on all leather may take your shoes apart.

Just setting it outside will help dissipate the smoke smell, probably faster if you set it in the sun, but that might also be more detrimental to the leather.

Put some baking soda in it and on it, then treat it with Montana pitch blend. The smell should leave.

Every John Schulz ASL shooting devotee should have a short recurve, just to remind him or her as to why one should shoot Hill style bows.

In 1977, I was at a crossroad as a high school Sophomore  I had shot ‘traditional’ bows for 10 years (started when I was five).  Fred Bear’s picture shooting a four wheel Bear Alaskan was the centerfold of bow hunting magazines. There sat a used Bear Alaskan on the shelf of the local archery shop.  I didn’t bite for whatever internal compass reason.  Soon after, Sam Fadala wrote an article for the February 1977 Bowhunter magazine featuring John Schultz and Howard Hill archery. A few mail correspondences back and forth brought me my first Hill longbow and I shot my first whitetail doe sitting on a tree limb stump about 10 feet off the ground and she was 12 yards away.  Eight years later I shot my first black bear with that same bow, using wood arrows for the first time (Easton’s Autumn Orange XX75 with yellow and orange feathers were my go to before that).  I still have that 57# 68” Tembo but now shoot my Northern Mist Shelton as my go to ASL.

That wood arrow in the picture had some history in itself.  John Grumley, Nels son, was selling prefinished, tapered shafts to that same archery shop.  These were 55# Acme Premium shafts and while I didn’t know much about tuning arrows I got lucky that that spine at my 28” draw flew beautifully out of that 57# Tembo with its B50 string.  John and I became friends soon after and I learned a lot about arrows and arrow making from him. He would buy a gross of Acme premium shafts at a time and these came from the last batch he had ever purchased. He hand spines each shaft on his Adams Spine tester and then matched in ten grain dozen lots in 5# ranges.  Most dozen bundles were within a few grains of each other and within 2-3 pound spine.  John was METICULOUS! His shop had a grinder that he had a custom jig he had machined at a local machine shop out of aluminum that had 8” v shaped channels that would guide perfect nock and broadhead tapers.  Every shaft I ever mounted a broadhead to tapered by him spun perfect.  I miss that man.  His stories about his dads bow making and deer hunting with Fred Bear were the utmost of entertainment.

Awfully quiet around here.... Anyone get bit lately?

This weekend I plan on putting a few of my ASL’s to the test at Sawmill.  The one I shoot best will be my choice for this hunting season.  The rest will have to stay on the rack until there is meat in the freezer.  Pressures on.

Today i am 68, I may be a wimp, but i hate going out to shoot when it is 90 degrees outside with high humidity.  Let my arrows pick the bow I use, I already know which those are, 1918s like my Morningstar,  45-50 with Hunter's Headslike my JD duo shooter, My 60-65 Acmes with Ribtecs and Surewoods with single bevel Hills like the Sunset, my very fine yew/bamboo like all of them plus the tapered Alaskans.  If it stays hot, i will just throw arrows at my dart board in the basement.  The ones that I can throw the best will get the nod, along with the bow that likes to shoot them.
