man i was gathering up my tools and such to make use of a friends heated shop, and i noticed something.
my factory bows, bowcases,arrows are sitting in a pile of dust just collecting debris from my little work area!
i also noticed that i had tons of epoxys , fabric for backing bows, different types grits of sand papers, and a pile of power tools just doing nothing.
when i got into this bowmaking thing i fell in deep!
i realy didnt need all that crap!
some of my hand tools on an earlier post is pretty much my go to stuff.
in the middle of working on a bbb today i realized how much i did not enjoy it as much as i like building selfbows!

i keep going out into the field with less and less, i used to love the outdoor catalogs that still come to the house.
man if it isnt wool,or leather, or look like it was made at least a hundred years ago i dont even blink an eye.
i swear i was born in the wrong place .wrong time.

oz... yea i pretty much give all my stuff away to people who get pie eyed over it.
as for the other newer tools i guess ill just save them for projects like putting a new slididng glass door in my cave.lol

Yea, lotsa junk they make nowadays!

My FG Etc. bows are collecting the dust too, with the exception of a target recurve that I take down to the range once awhile.

sometimes i feel like im left out of a kids marching band when i go into the woods with some of my buds.hehehe
treestands banging on the gps in front , the cellphone ringing a tune in the middle as i try to make my way past all of the scent sprays they are sending my way as i shake my head at the whole scenerio.

The last time I was out deer hunting, I was trying a spot close to town. I had been sitting quietly in my brush blind for an hour or so, it was just getting on towards dusk. suddenly, I heard an enormous NOISE! it sounded like somebody dragging a bag of tin cans down a railroad track. I continued to sit for another 10 min. or so, but the noise continued. As it got darker, I got up and started walking back out. The source of the noise was 2 guys attempting to put up their treestand! All that, plus they were only about 100 yds from the road. Yikes! I bet they didn't see alot of deer that night, I hope they were quieter when they went back the next day!

I now how you feel, seems like I'm always trying to make do with 'less and less' while everybody else is trying to use 'more and more' ...
