I know this guy that does leather work.....

Postby Yohon » Thu Feb 18, 2016 12:45 pm

I really like armguards, always have and have used a bunch of different ones over the years. Liked the ones with knives on em and any thing with antler accents is cool as all get out but when it comes to hunting all that fancy stuff gets hung up on everything for me.Some of em also tend to be just a bit long for me, Ive had some that were just long enough to be uncomfortable and even restrict hand movement a bit. I also use a compass all the time with watching wind direction soooo I had this idea of what I wanted in my next armguard, simple but functional. There is this guy I know who does leatherwork on here and I hit him up with my idea's last fall when I was down there hunting. Stykshooter took my goofy request and today I got my new hunting arm guard....just what the doctor ordered....

Very cool! I need to talk to "that" guy about a sheath for my favorite knife....


Only problem with a compass or GPS is it takes away my last excuse for coming home late from the bar. :?

Nice. I have a compass on the Titan III but the only problem is it reads 15 degrees off due to being too close to the steel limb bolt. John needs to work on that one. But it's kind of hard getting lost on a 3-D course.

Cool stuff ;)

Look like a hold over ( gap) calculator to me !

Nice work Randy
When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.

That's not actually a compass but rather an inclinometer, or tilt meter. It shows at a glance the degrees of incline or angle of his bow arm. Makes easy to calculate proper hold for the "Baltimore" shots.

Very cool. Yeah, that ole boy ain't half bad when it comes to leather work.

The question is......Does it make you shoot better?

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...
