  6. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    I'm going to try to make my first bow. Here is a picture of the limb I found. I located a few nice trees, but didn't want to take down a tree to practice with, so I came across this relatively freshly felled tree, hacked it up then dragged it home. It's easily 6' long and 3"+ thick. I've...

    A lot of people spend way too much money on name brand hiking/camping items. The majority of the gear that I use is all homemade by myself. I believe that homemade gear is paramount to store bought gear because it is cheaper and serves the same purpose without paying for a brand just because...

    Thanks to some inspiration from many of you out there (I'll point out Joerg whose phoenix was the inspiration), when my son asked for a slingshot, I said "OK, but we have to make it".
