    a Texas YeeHaw

    Post by TroyWRobbins on Sun Nov 29, 2015 3:28 pm

    I have been an enthusiasts for many at least three decades and am wanting to learn to make them as a hobby.  I have never hunted but have had the desire to learn to by use of the crossbow. 
    Although I have drooled over some of the high tech mass production pieces, I find my love for the wood and steel to be Poetically romantic and artistic.
    I have no skills in carving, blacksmithing, or the such. So in finding this website has been a yeehaw for me.
    Hopefully in the future I will be able to present to you my first built by hand crossbow.

    Until then, I will meet you in the back 40.
