Re: Four New ones

Tony thank you What is it with you 'bow making blokes' in Qld though that makes you so submissive towards the finer of the species. Is it because you're in touch with your creative side that you're all a bit softer Not at all sure what that means , my wife reckons that I'm a stubborn pig headed Nean...

Thanks Jeff , don't have any full draw pics , using the timer on my camera would entail reading the instructions and being male I'm pretty sure that is actually illegal here in Queensland

Thanks

I thought I'd mentioned when I was at your place last I was doing another one , I think this one is either my 5 th or 6 th Reflex Deflex but the others have either been 66" NTN or 64" NTN , this is the first at 68" NTN

G'day Stuart

Where abouts in central Qld are you ?

There may be one of us near by who can help you in person , that is a whole lot easier than trying to explain building a bow in words

Re: Osage Orange seeds

Sending seeds into Australia is a good way to get on the bad side of Australian customs , they just won't let them through , big trouble

Mate in Kansas wanted to send me some a few years back but when he checked it out found he could get into lots of trouble
