    Thank you. I enjoyed your comment that if you get a broad head point 6 inches in and in the right place, wait a little while, you will enjoy a deer steak. I tend to forget that simple fact, an expensive high tech crossbow with x hundred pounds pull, fancy sights, carbon fiber arrows, etc, doesn't accomplish any more than his bow, has a much lower rate of fire, and has parts that are likely to break and would not be available if SHTF.

    Just looked at the price for a new Bear take down bow w/35 lb draw weight. not quite $1400! (Bear takedown recurve)

    I gave my old take down to my son while he was on the East coast with the Corps. He wanted to go bow hunting in PA.

    I gave up bow hunting when the trees started growing arrows... Last time out shooting at critter was at a prairie dog village on a guys ranch in Utah. It was a a lot of fun, but now, just too dangerous - at least out West.

    Thanks for the video - I like the idea of upcycling older gear that otherwise might get tossed.
