    Stumbling across your website is the single coolest find of the week.
    I can remember making a crossbow from a kit way back in high school back in the late 60's. For some odd reason, I got the urge to do it again and started looking for info. I'm sure I'll get tons of great tips here. So now it's time to start reading. By the way, I do have hobbies of woodworking and stained glass that keep me busy. The shop is where we all want to be when possible. Hope to get to know many people here.

    I am in Waddell, just east of the entrance to the White Tank mountains. I bet you did some a lot of hunting coming from the Prescott area. I'm heading to my cabin in Crown King in about an hour to get out of this miserable heat. Thunderstorms everywhere this morning! Should be nice.
