09- full draw

"Cheers,  yes, the bow is made from privet- chinese tree privet and shiny leaf privet are invasive weeds here in New Zealand. They are common and grow quite big- they make good bow wood in my opinion."

Liam replied to Terry Smith's discussion *** the sling bow ***
"I watched Dave Canterbury's modifications to a slingshot with interest. He seems to think it could take reasonable sized game. A lot of people seem to struggle with the mechanics of good shooting form with a bow- maybe this would appeal to…"

No worries! It will be freezing so that would definitely not be a good idea for you. I dont think my missus is too happy, I guess its safer than mountaineering which I got into a bit last year so she shouldn't complain haha.
I study at the Tamaki campus of Auck Uni so still not far away, sometimes I have clinic placement at Starship so we could meet up for lunch or coffee then.

Thanks for that! I was thinking of whipping together a post with the primitive bow videos, there are 12 parts. Its more like a film to watch, definitely above the average point and shoot caliber of videos.
P.s. check out the Trading post under the marketplace tab, going for a community trading/sharing resources angle. What do you think?

Hi Liam
Looks like you have figured the attachment thing out. What I do is go to any comment box and while its blank, click on the "Upload a file" button. Then pick the file and upload it. Its then on the servers, and it spits out the HTML link into the box. Copy and paste this into any HTML text box and you're good to go, you can see I have done this on the Knives Group page.
Hope this helps!
