I love a good woodie, specially when it's self nocked.

Rob, You need horn tips, lots of horn tips, get rid of all that plastic stuff.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest Up to God.

Nice arrow!  I've been thinking of making my next batch with a self nock, never did that before.  Is that POC? And what do you have on the pointy end?

Yes, POC - from an old batch of Acme's I saved from the mid 60's.

Hot melt glued field point, so I can swap out for a Wensel Woodsmen for hog hunting.

Dad made my first lemonwood bow when I was 7 years old (these dayze I consider me self 75 years young :P ) from a stave acquired from L.E. Stemmler out on Long Island, NY.   Haven't stopped pulling string and loosing shaft since, at least once every month.  Great exercise during the winter months, too.  My basement range is only 8 yards long, but distance isn't the prime goal and is good enuf.
