Mastevt and I went to his place to do some round up spraying for a future food plot and to burn a couple of brush piles of locust tree tops. After we got that done we went for a stroll looking for an Osage Orange (Hedge Apple) tree to fit my requirements for making a self bow. Found one that's about 7 feet long and fairly straight with only a couple of places that might give me trouble once I get into making the longbow. Once I get the log split into 4 pieces I'll seal the ends and store them in my garage for a couple of years to dry out. Then the fun begins turning this stick into a bow. Thanks again Scott for letting me tag along and in finding me a good Osage Orange Stave.
