Thanks for the kind words. I am working on the buffalo horns at this time, because the rough sanding is done outside where the dust can blow away with the wind. Winter is approaching, and I want to get a few of these howlers ready to go. Buffalo horn requires quite a lot of time spent sanding and polishing, but the end result makes it more than worthwhile.

Nice job Rich. Those bad boys require a lot of sanding and finishing. I have only made two from authentic Buffalo horn and I won't be doing anymore. It's simply too labor intensive for me. They are super rough and sinewy horns. I wet sanded with different grits for hours to fair them out. I have only this one left for sale and I'm done.Attached File  1.jpg   22.12KB   46 downloads

Very nice.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
