ConnorOMalley replied to Jeremy Robert Williams's discussion How to Break a Bow: A Step by Step Guide in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Bummer!  What was the draw weight at failure?  Do you think it was over-strained? I wonder if having a rounded belly instead of flat would have helped."

Steve Nicolini replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Is this real?? in the group Mushrooms!
"I have never seen such a thing.  The largest I have seen myself are some of the Ganoderma species on the NW coast."

Filip Tkaczyk replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Is this real?? in the group Mushrooms!
"Impressive picture! Although the size of this mushroom stretches the imagination I think it is actually a real specimen. The flesh must be very firm to allow it to grow to such a size. There are similarly huge species in Africa.  Although…"

Filip Tkaczyk replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Mystery tracks! in the group Tracking and Trailing Studies
"Great find!  Love seeing Aplodontia tracks.  Have only seen them a few times every.  Usually the substrate where they live does not leave very clear prints. Good finds!"

preston taylor replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"In those videos you put the link up for, the natives he showed had hardwood points, which were really heavy. Good luck I'd like to see what you can come up with."

ConnorOMalley replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Too cool Preston.  I'm very inspired.  I'd love to hold one of those arrows and see how the weights compare to what I'm used to.  I've been scraping like crazy trying to finish an osage bow because I want to start…"

preston taylor replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Hey folks, so here's the finished arrow. I was able to get it over 650 grains (according to the Ashby studies, once you're arrow is over 650 grains it will penetrate through heavy bones 100% of the time, given that you have the other…"

preston taylor replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"This arrow comes out to 29% EFOC. Just 1% shy of Ultimate-FOC (>30%). Total weight of the bare-shaft is 588 grains, so 62 grains short of the 'magic' number, 650 grains. I'm going to foot the arrow to protect the insert from…"

preston taylor replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Figured it out with some help from the pros. Tested a 500 spine arrow and it flew straight on with no tail wag. Those other arrows were spined too heavy and were bouncing off my handle which made them oscillate back and forth. Just kind of…"

preston taylor replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Not sure, some of the more experienced folks think my arrows are too stiff, so have to try some lighter spines. Although, one guy said maybe the wooden bow just doesn't want to shoot carbons...!"

ConnorOMalley replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Awesome.  What is the trouble with tuning your carbon arrows?  Are they too bendy now with the heavy forward weight?"

preston taylor replied to ConnorOMalley's discussion Making High FOC (forward of center) Arrows in the group Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills
"Those videos have some great info and they really lay the groundwork for the "perfect arrow". There's a neat section on some native papa new guinea arrows and how they have been using FoC before there was modern contact with…"

"Looked in the field guide. They definitely were jumping mouse tracks. I'd never seen those either."
