I plant white clover in my lawn.

I've never found a need to plant it, simply not trying to kill it off has always been sufficient to have plenty of clover around.

Got my 64" TD longbow out and shot a few times. Man, I love that bow!!

Had to quit, target is too close to the bluebird house and they felt threatened.  I don't know what their problem is, I never miss by ten feet, only four or five... :dunno:   :laughing:
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Scored some 100yr old Doug Fir barn wood from a friend who was dismantling the structure. 100yrs is old for around here. I know for a lot of you who live in parts of the country with more history, thats a drop in the bucket. I like this old wood for arrows. After its aged for a long time it seems to act and it weighs like POC. Most of it is decorative, but some has nice grain and should make some fine shafts.

I make carpenter bee traps to give away, Home Depot has Doug Fir 4x4x8 post for around $20, I buy them for bee traps but as a former user of a router arrow shaft machine I often see a post with perfect grain that I can't stop thinking about making shafts out of. I have more arrows than I will ever shoot, dozens of store bought shafts as well but I still drool over such great wood. I have seen some posts with very tight grain as well, the one I just bought has tighter grain than the grain in the bee trap picture.

You have to look through the pile but the good posts are there, I bought this one a couple of days ago, clear straight grain end to end with only one knot that wouldn't affect any normal length shaft up to 32".

You can see the grain in the trap.

I know this bee trap stuff isn't bow related, Roy, give it a couple of days for people to have a look see, then delete it.

Thanks Eric for the carpenter bee trap info. I thought it very interesting. We don’t have have any such vermin here in the frozen north.
And although Im no lawyer, I would think potential arrow wood diverted into bee traps is bow related. :dunno:

Thanks Eric! And they break my concentration when shooting off my deck so bow related as all get out!

I'm fine with it Eric, been meaning to make a few of those myself.

Kenny sends me scraps from his broken bow riser projects and I'll use those to make the traps.

I'll release the bees one at a time and shoot them out of the air with a BBO bow and cane arrows:)

You definitely want tighter grain for arrows then the 4X4 Fir in those pictures.
