 Okay, it is amazing how much we all have in common. Here are a few pics for Rick, TW, and Angel Eyes that show part of my madness. Pics aren't great. That is something I need to work on.
The arrow heads where all collected in Kentucky back when I use to follow a plow thru a field. Except for the white one in the center which was made by a gentleman in OK. Can't for the life of me remember his name.
The sticks are found in my ramblings and are very theraputic to sit around and whittle on.
The bows where made around the 1930's in central Wisconsin and all have carved horn nocks
the thicker, dark piece of wood with the sticks is Osage orange and is in the process of becoming a short flat bow.
I don't think there are to many things that I have ever heard of that I haven't tried but it keeps me off the streets and the better half doesn't have to look far to find me. Wink
And Yes I do own a couple of guitars but I never really learned how to play  Roll Eyes Embarrassed

GB, I can see where it would have taken a little time to collect this many specimens, I was always surprised, at how small a lot of the American Indian bows and arrows are/were, some of the arrows I remember seeing in museums  seemed so short, but it was pointed out the the wood they used for there bows were very strong, and because they weren't very long, they packed a pretty good punch, compared to the long bows used in England and Europe, these Indian bows and arrows were at the opposite end in size. for distance it was hard to beat the long bow, the recurve was great in short range or brush, and was/is a very fast shooting bow.

                            Thanks for sharing Pardner

 TW you are right about the Native American bows being short. Would have been a real pain to shoot a long bow from horseback. they favored the osage because of its strength and they also covered the back of the bow with sinew and sometimes rawhide. The short bow that I show with the stcks is more along those lines being what they call a "flat bow". the others are all in the long bow style.  
The first bow that I ever made would have made you laugh. It looks perfect but a 3 yr old could probably bend it double.  Embarrassed Embarrassed I took a little to much wood off of the belly when I was shaping it. SO, it hangs in the shop to remind me to take a little at a time no matter what I am working on. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Oh, here is my little arrowhead collection.

  GB, nice collection, and assortment of styles, you're right about the long bow being hard to shoot from horseback, the type of in and out fighting the Indians did, that short bow served him better. My wife's cousin is licenses to shoot a cross bow, he does real well at harvesting game each year with it, shoulder injures like mine don't allow him to shoot his long bow anymore, I have brother in laws that shoot compound bows, I never got into them, but I've been told they are real easy to shoot, and much more user friendly than what I'm used too, my heart is still with the old way.

                              Thanks for sharing Pard

Niice arrowheads Smiley
 Shoulda seen the knife i found today,some old feller had some antique dressers out in his driveway and my cousin and i stopped to check them out,man he had a three car garage turned into an antique store,had a falling block 38 pistol,a 32 degree mason sword,a really nice percussion shotgun english made from england with silver inlay.A great big knife cuaght my eye and it had the pirate blade look with leather scabbard with brass at the top.The brass hilt had a meatal nub on one side and when ya slid the kinfe in the nub lined up with a hole on the hand gaurd and just on one side and about the size of a nail head.I may have to add it to my kife collection if i can talk him down some,he wanted 250 for it.Also had a chest halter for a horse with silver conchos on it,said it was made by the Visalia Saddle Co. but i could'nt find any markings.I thought i knew every dealer in town and turns out he knew my grandfather,He sure had some stuff in there.

You guys ever see a knife like that?

Any body in these parts do Scrimshaw?

I am in the design stages of a very important project, I'm leaning towords a little bit on Elephant Ivory. Less than 1 1/2" diameter.

Or does any one know who a go to artist is?

Ned, here is a piece I did quite a few years ago and I have done 5 or 6 powder horns.  Its really not hard to do unless you have trouble with your hands then it can be a real bear.
With what I have seen from you it shouldn't be hard for you to figure out.
 As a matter of fact I have a new knife that I just finished that I plan on doing a little scrimshawing on. I will post it under Bunkhouse Ramblins when I get it done.

 Well I get the feeling Roll Eyes that a lot of you guys spend some very productive time "learning". I have a tendency to over simplify the learning process and I am sure it shows in my finished product.  Embarrassed
We'll move this one over to the Bunkhouse thread since it really isn't leather related.

Howdy, pards. I've been on the road for a couple days but I'm back. what a great bunch of pictures you have posted. I love those arrowheads and bows. I learned to shoot a bow when I was a kid. I got a bow for my birthday and broke my right arm a week later. I learned to shoot left handed and the cast made a great arm guard while learning. I haven't shot one in years. I suppose I should go give it a try again. It's really a lot of fun.

What a cool clock display that is, Johnny. Most intriguing. I like it.

I have a great guitar that I never learned to play right. Maybe some day when I slow down. I can play two songs on my harmonica, though. One of 'em is Red River Valley and the other one isn't. Grin

Well guys, we had a great service today. We dedicated a baby and anounced that my long time associate is heading down the road in January to be the senior pastor of a church in another town. I can almost always work something about the range or leather, or CAS in the message.

We have a gal, Norma Lee Quick, who's been a top shooter for the last few years take a bad fall while inline skating, and broke both arms and wrists. I saw her last night at our annual night shoot, and she's hanging in there, but in some significant pain.

She's staying with her folks, cause she needs quite a bit of care. She says she can't even wipe her butt, and that's got to be frustrating, not to mention humiliating!

We've been taking up a collection for her, cause she doesn't have insurance, and the bills are piling up. If you think of it, she could sure use some prayer!
