  4. Survival Guy,

    Nice to meet you. I'm up here in N. Ga about 45 min from Chattanooga Tn. My work takes me anywhere from Toccoa to Coweta, alot of time in Lula and Dawsonville. Monroe if I remember is out by Lawrenceville.

    Do you go to the NGT (North Ga. Trad.) 3D events up in Gainesville? They will start having them again in Jan. or Feb. after hunting season. I try to make a couple a year. BK (before kids) I never missed them.

    Sir, Crashdive told mr to get in touch with you. I am interrested in to start going to these rendezvous that they have for blackpowder buff's. I understand that they have tomahawk and knife throwing contests along with making fire with flint & steel plus shooting blackpowder pistols. It is in this area that I need your advise. Do I need to get myself a flintlock or a percussion pistol? And, do you know of any good websites that I can check them out on? Your help and advise would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your time,

  6. I can send it in a pm but I don't want to post it for non members to see. You can email me at

    Hello, I'm a newbie to the forums and the whole survival thing. I have been looking for instructions on making a stone tomahawk and Crash said I should talk to you. Thanks.

    I am thinking more of a backed bow that will draw about 26 - 28" and pull about 40 lbs. I would like one that is no more then 48" in length. I have been making bows since I was a kid but they always seem to break at the wrong moment. I'll check out those web site you provided. Thank you.

    Do you ever sell the bows you make?

The Dream Buck

The Dream Buck 11-2-2008

It was an easy shot, 25 or 30 yards away. The doe was broadside and stepped out into the open and looked away. I was fortunate as I did have one arrow left in my quiver, a result of a fall out of the tree that I was sitting in.

The fall was not far, but unfortunately I had landed on my elk skin plains quiver that did not have any support. All but

Weekends with Pop

by FVR on 09-28-2008 at 09:14 PM
My grandfather aka “Pop” and I would hunt and fish on the weekends from the time I was 14 till I joined the Marines. In the Fall, a bow hunting surf fishing weekend was usually the norm.

He would pick me up at zero dark thirty on Saturday morning, I would load up my Bear recurve and arrows and we would head for the Dunkin Donuts and the 15 minute light. Once there, we would sit and open our morning snack and feast on what we (he) had purchased. When the light changed, we continued

The Shot Not Taken

by FVR on 09-21-2008 at 10:54 PM
Man I should have taken that shot. Maybe, betcha I would have missed. Man I should have taken that shot.

Don’t laugh, we all have “The Shot Not Taken” in our hunting histories. Some just choose not to think, re-think, or obsess about them. Here are a few “Shots Not Taken” from mine and a few hunting buddies histories.

It was a beautiful morning to hunt turkeys on Spooky Mountain. I give the mountain that name because if you ever walk off it at night, you’ll know

Tribute to an Archery Legend

by FVR on 03-26-2008 at 11:23 PM
It all started in Winston Georgia, off I-20 towards Alabama during the first week of bow season 1994. Got in the woods and hung my stand. Typical Frank set up, off a beaten path with the stand only 6 feet off the ground.

I had only been in the stand for an hour or two and here he came. He was a nice 6pt with long tines. And they were still in velvet, a trophy to be had. He walked within 10 feet of me, arrow nocked, release on the string, he turned his head away from me, perfect

Running with "The Bull"

by FVR on 03-26-2008 at 11:20 PM
I’ve always been sort of a trader. I would rather trade than sell any day. It was the mid 70’s and the compound bow was making a mark in the archery community. It was the “future” of bow hunting and everyone had to have one.

Not me. Matter of fact, I kind of profited a little by the influx of compound bows in the local stores. One store was K-Mart. They stocked their new bows for the upcoming archery season and they were all compounds. Last year’s recurve bows sat in the corner
