I have 3 or 4 ironwood staves, these were cut and split 4 to 6 years ago, ends painted, stored in the rafters of the garage.
May be able to get a couple bows out of the bigger staves.
These are ready to work.

I am a TBM member and enjoy this site but do not recall this issue being addressed in the past.
Is it acceptable to sell used outdoor gear on this site? Huh
This is gear that I have purchased fore myself, used but no longer need.
Traditional archery gear, deer stands and traps make up the bulk of the gear.

I enjoyed the pictures of the hog hunt.

Thanks,
Mort

I have not been on this site for over a year but I keep up with all of you regularly. I enjoy your hunts and shop time.  Thanks for sharing.
I have been having joint pain for a number of years that has slowly taken the fun out of shooting my bows.  Thus, I shot little last yr and have not shot since last archery season.
However, it looks like I now have a firm diagnosis (Psoriatic Arthritis) and have medication that seems to give some relief, after 6 weeks of use. But I am still having a good deal of discomfort in my fingers when pulling and holding the bow string.

I am thinking of trying a release. 1) Can one shoot instinctively with a release? 2) Have any of you tried a release? 3)Does a release change the anchor point? 4) Recommendation on a release? The release would need to attach to my wrist some way as I don't think holding it with my hand will work.

Hope you all have a good season.

Congratulations Chad.  I read the review and your "Osprey" design preformed extremely well.
Couldn't have happened to a better guy.
Take care, Mort

Going to try and post a pic. of a bow rack I just completed.
I have tried before with no luck, so keeping my fingers crossed.
Well how about that, it worked.  Now to get a better size.

Thanks guys,  It helps to hear what works for others.  I will purchuse some mouth calls and go to work. It sounds like the broadhead that I use for deer hunting will be fine.  I use a fixed 2 blade head.
I have not decided if I will use a blind.  I have a gillie suit and would like to try that with a natural blind.  But I understand that getting a bow up and drawing to shoot when not screened from the turkeys vision is a problem.

Anyway thanks again, good luck with your spring hunts.

If anyone has anything more to add, please do.

I checked the online results for the turkey lottery.  I was suprised to see that I was drawn.  Shocked  As a first time spring turkey hunter I have some learning to do.  Learn to call, find a place to hunt, lots to do.
Chad, I would take you up on your offer but I believe you are in a different area. I was drawn for 507.  I regularly see 25 to 30 turkeys in a field about 7 miles south of me, guess I will start with that.
A couple of question for all of you expert turkey hunters:  if one is drawn in the lottery can a person use either a bow or shotgun? Huh  What type of call is easiest to learn to use? Huh  Mouth, box, slate? Huh
For you guys who use your bow, do you recomment the big broadheads like the Guillotine? Huh

Thanks
Mort
