Hi TJ, Just wanted to tell you how proud I am to have such a cool grandson. It means so much to Grandpa to share these projects with you. You bring out some of the best of him also. Keep up the good work.

Love you, Grammy

TJ, that is awesome man!......... everytime i read one of your posts it is like i am going back in time 17 years. not too many guys in their teens are interested in archery, bowbuilding, and bowhunting as i was or as you are..... i guarantee it will be a life-long addiction :D .

one of these days, you are going to have to come out west on an elk hunt with me or a bow building vacation.... i'd love to meet ya sometime.

fantastic job on that bow! i bet your mom is more proud of it than you will ever know.

Thanks a ton gino! i know i kind of am a lil weird compared to most kids. :mrgreen: theres maybe a dozen kids at my school that hunt out of 800. i guess thats partly cause im in the city but still....

Elk, for some reason, is an animal i would absolutely love to hunt. i really dont know why, but an elk just seems like the perfect game to me. I would love to meet you too gino, but id be embarrassed to show you my t/d :oops: and how bad its tuned or its lack of tuning would be a better phrase.

anyways, i just went out and shot it a dozen times and it really pushes the 1916's ive got but they need more weight up front cause they do end up pretty sideways in the target. ill prolly have to get some 1716's for her to shoot and keep the 1916's for when i wanna shoot it. :D :lol:

jeesh, i guess i should try not to be as good at this as i am, ive got two more to build now. one for dad and one for our friend who lives in alaska in the summers. G

ino, did you see my post about the R/D bow?

TJ what is the weight of the bow at your draw length?.... what is your drawlength?

no worries about being a little different. heck, i was the only goofy kid on the block (i lived in california until i was 13) who would go to the video store and rent hunting videos instead of regular movies....... and my shooting range was over our swimming pool :D .
