    New to this forum but hardly new. Started years ago with slingshots and slowly made my way here. I'm a target shooter, more curious then predatory, of particular interest are small scale reverse energy bows such as Dennis Woodlands Survival Flipper, in fact, I'll pay well for one if you have one for sale or know someone who may be willing to sell theirs. I build crossbow ideas out of curiousity more then need, just have to see how a thing works, so, I have more then a few half finished projects with pulleys, levers and crude cams Thanks for taking a minute to read this post.

    Welcome! Lots of good info here. You'll be particularly interested in this compound project: http://thearbalistguild.forumotion.com/t774p45-compound-project#8778

    And this survival style "Paleo-Compound"

    Hi Kenh, Thanks for your reply and the interesting links you included, in particular, the Paleo weapon is to say the least unique. You ever fish for Snook around Ft. Myers? Regards,

    I loves me some snook! Fun to catch and really tasty. But the FWC has cut 'way back on the harvest. Hasn't been legal to keep one for awhile. We had a snook-killing cold spring two years back that wiped out most of the big breeders. I remember counting over 200 dead fish, 18"-24" long, in a half mile stretch of the canal I was living along at the time!

    I live aboard a 26 ft sailboat (my retirement 'home') so fish and fishing for the pot are part of my way of life.
