Back when I lived in Mercer County New Jersey, Some 25 years ago, I had such a place that turned into a luxury housing development. Fortunately, the developer left my old treestand at the end of a street, at the edge of a woodlot. It looks out of place but I stopped to look at it one day and some kids were climbing up it as a tree fort. I asked if they would let me climb up into “their’ fort and they said no. When I told them I built it and what it was for, they went home and got a toy bow and arrow set (with plunger tips on the end. They said one of their parents beefed it up. I stop by and see it when I visit relatives.StixMemberAugust 19, 2013 at 3:35 pmPost count: 158StixMemberAugust 10, 2013 at 7:20 pmPost count: 158StixMemberAugust 10, 2013 at 7:15 pmPost count: 158StixMemberAugust 6, 2013 at 4:42 pmPost count: 158StixMemberAugust 3, 2013 at 2:24 pmPost count: 158StixMemberMemberJune 23, 2013 at 8:39 pmPost count: 158StixMemberJune 19, 2013 at 4:57 pmPost count: 158StixMemberJune 19, 2013 at 1:52 amPost count: 158StixMemberMemberJune 1, 2013 at 1:09 pmPost count: 158
I believe that the bow raffle will be for shoot attendees only. I also don’t believe that this bowyer has a website. The shoot is in an area that has plenty of camping available. There were times that the shoot was held during very hot weather, 90’s in town, 80’s at shoot. It’s all weather dependent. Mosquito’s are a real problem due to nearby waterholes, creeks and stream. Bug spray is a MUST. There have been times where it was like Alaska black fly swarms. Again, weather dependent. I believe the simultaneous launching of arrows is the “battle clout”. Simulating the old english archery attack. There are some new events planned such as the water jug shoot. 2, shooters at 2 water jugs hanging and balanced by a string. As you hit them, and the water pours out, the lighter one raises up. Objective is to have your opponents side touch ground first.
This shoot is a real kick. Look us up if you plan on going. We’ll shoot arrows as well as the breeze.StixMemberMay 31, 2013 at 2:58 amPost count: 158StixMemberApril 23, 2013 at 2:49 amPost count: 158StixMemberMemberApril 12, 2013 at 12:28 amPost count: 158
Yes, I tried it on a Gerber knife I have and it sharpened it right up. smooth sharp finish. I believe it’s best use is in the field for a knife that has a good edge but needs to be touched up while field dressing/skinning/boning. It isn’t coarse enough to sharpen a dinged up blade. Maybe the diamond one is more suitable for that, or a sharpening stone once the hunt is over. They sell these both on Amazon. I paid $2.80, that’s right $2.80 for mine with free usmail shipping. Now it looks like it’s about $8 for the ceramic, and $12 for the diamond. I haven’t tried it on the BHA life member Helle yet, I can’t dull that one….after 2 deer it’s still shaving hair. Maybe I really don’t need a sharpener.StixMemberMemberApril 4, 2013 at 4:11 pmPost count: 158
I just ordered this one: http://www.accusharp.com/products/334C/index.html I think the ceramic rods will be a lttle gentler on the blade. I also like this one, which is same design but has a diamond rod: http://www.accusharp.com/products/017C/index.html
