    Default more turkey feathers

    We were out messin around in the garage yappin it up. When we deside to make a pattern and cut out some sort of shiled cut turkey feathers. After I tried some Ryzors I have for the kids..

    Ryzors are 2" and not sure yet on them... release is key it comming along but not as crisp as it can be..

    the 3 " turk's now they are flyin ok and grouping, now this is instinctive no sights no release aid, ok you can count my finger tab, and my glasses as a sight aid...lmao

    Shot is 5 yards target is a bottle cap hanging on 30# mono..
    I managed to hit it many times, swings like a mad dog.. did stick it to the bag 5 times always in the same hole... lol 3pic.jpg

    We used the Gateway Razor as a model and made the turkey fletches 4" long and 5/8" high, he's getting nice stable flight, and they group. Waiting to see if they'll stabilise a broadhead. Picked up a Stone Mountain 58" recurve string and have twisted the bejeasus out of it till its about 57", trying to get to the (we're guessing ) recomended brace height of 8 1/4 - 9 1/4", Had the fistmele to 8 1/2 for a few shots till the SM string streached some more, bow was shooting very well at that brace. Will be making a string jig in the near future, and then I'll make a 57" string for it, and a 65 1/2" string for the old narrow limbed 'custom' 68" recurve that I've had since 1970. We are now thinking of making a takedown riser, similar to the Blacktail line of bows, laminating a few exotic woods and forming the riser, am viewing youtube vids for begaining tips. Any one have any experience in this type of work?

    how are you cutting the feathers? I saw a burner thing somewhere that uses a hot wire or something to cut your own feathers. I just don't remember where I saw it,though.

    How are you going to do a rifle stock?
