    Installed homemade whoopie slings on my SBPRO last night. Also made a structural ridge line out of amsteel but didn't get it installed yet. I have been working like a dog and have hardly been outside at all this year. I am so excited to get out I am probably going to run around the woods like a puppy.

    Same here. Looking forward to the down time and good company. I finished sewing one new hammock and will be in it for the duration of the trip. I cant lie with hunting season fast approaching my mind is on hunting more than anything but the trip will be the calm before the storm! I have been building a new rifle over the past year and just about have it all finished. still need to inlet the dbm and do the pillar and action bedding and float the barrel , however all the other parts are in and going strong!

    We will have a good bit of food to share or trade lol !

    got out for a few hours bowhunting this morning.... scared up a couple armadillos on the way in. heard what i think were a couple deer (i'm thinking 2-3, doe with yearlings) go by the stand before i could see to shoot. saw one further off, outside my bow range, later on in the morning. felt good to be out, but the skeeters got me pretty good.

    Our season is Oct 1st. I have bow hunted all my life and killed my first deer with a recurve and never looked back. Man that has been 24 years ago and never did I rifle hunt, but this year I am putting the bow up after gun season opens and never looking back :)


    Oh seeker I wont have a bow to bring other than my compound as i just sold the last longbow! Do bring camping items or whatever you wish to trade as I know several on the HF said they will be bringing things.

    hey guys... had a weird thing happen to me today... and we may end up with another attendee!

    so i'm at work, talking with a guy who tells me about a guy who has similar interests to mine and gives me a phone number... so i call him after work tonight. It turns out that ANOTHER guy (who, curiously, i don't really know outside of his name, the fact that he was one of my kid's teachers years ago, and my wife is a substitute teacher who sorta knows who he is) gave him MY name, immediately, when the subject of 'the woods' came up between the two of them a few days ago. how's THAT for weird? i have no idea how he knew of my woods interest... i'm thinking maybe one of my kids brought it up, but seriously... who would remember that?

    he said he might have time to come to the hang. anyway, he thinks he may have stumbled across the site, but didn't know for sure. but he may be joining us shortly. i think he'll fit in, based on his interests.

    funniest part of it all is that he lives just a couple miles away. small world.

    looks like the whole family is back on que. The wife and daughter were supposed to be at a piglet auction for 4H that weekend. Looks like we won't have to do that now. A friend has offered to include us in his inside line to a local farmer who has some championship lines that we can just buy outright. We are doing a tuning camp this weekend close to baton rouge to try out the all the new toys before we head up to the big woods. I am so looking forward to this.
    Note, is anyone bringing bows? I really want to start shooting recurve but I want to get some highly opinionated feedback first. Anybody know where I could get some?

    nah... i still need to try to make a pair... have a few patterns, but nothing done yet, hands-on... seems like i remember giving you a hide... did i? and have you been able to make anything with it yet? however your mocs come out, it's good if you made it yourself.

    I ended up with the hide. I keep holding on to it like the ring of power instead of just using it for something.

    Bench, i know how that is. one of mine lives in NY state. enjoy it. and she probably smells a lot better than us.

    hey gav... try pulling them into the little box on the bottom of the window, when you edit the post, that says 'drag photos here'... that might fix it. read it in another post.

    actually, check your pm... i'm sending you my email... send them to me, and i'd be happy to post them.
