chapiit08 : The only thing I don't like about this video is that it's too short. I could have watched and listened to this man for two hours without even noticing the time passing.

darkmagic gaming : am I the only one who thinks he should make his own YouTube channel

Roman Hamm : 3:06 "anybody want an ice cream sandwitch"

Walter Johnson : His explanation as an expert is probably the same as you would receive from a master Bow maker of a thousand years ago. When he talks you hear history and truth

Rockster969 : Old school. You can't buy that. Ya gotta learn it by living it. What an artisan, a national trasure.

Stephen O'Brien : Wow, ..""Without the past were would I be?""....Simple and profound way to sum up a story. Good stuff! TY

Dan Carman : The son is missing his pointer finger and the father is missing part of his ring finger.... These guys are hardcore!

Charli’s Channel : I don't hunt or shoot bows but I'll be damned if I don't take a moment to learn what a master has to say, no matter his specialty.

P1STOL P. : beautiful bow..i love when old timers tell stories like this one..

Justin Cameron : with what happened to the Native Americans I just think it's beautiful that this man wanted to recreate what they had

Ben Splittstoesser : as a fellow bow making I'm inspired by this.

Robert Garcia : you sir, are a magnificent artist! thanks for the knowledge!

SupBro Vang : He is smart! Using animal hide to make glue cool

dean garbutt : Thank you for bringing me back to a time when my granddad would tell me things like this on the porch or our family cottage in northern ontario. May i ask what it would cost to buy an average horn bow?

Ulaaka Gerlee : Great video! These guys should come to Mongolia.... We making horn bow for centuries

Logan M. : Cool bows but as a bowyer and archer myself, his comment about horn being the superior material that gives you the most speed per arrow is simply not true. There are all sorts of different woods and materials that are just as strong and will give you the same draw weight and speed.

Snow Man : Amazing, Like him I also do not like where the world is heading, Hats off to him for doing his part in preserving history.

Andrew Williams : When he sais native Americans he specifically means the Lemhi Shoshone. Traditionally they soaked the horns and wrapped them to a piece of elk horn to connect them. Stories tell of putting an arrow through 10 inch tree trunks and having pull back of 150+ lbs.

Ankur Baruah : And now we have human beings sharing pictures of what they had for lunch and eating Tide pods. From there to here. Wow.

Its ya boi : "If it ain't white it ain't right"

mwillblade : Leave the bow stored and forgotten then small beetles will start eating holes in it. It happened to my horn handled pocket knives!

crgaillee : Thank you sir for the wonderful glimpse into the past. Just thins one video you have taught me good deal. That's why the Lord makes sure we respect our elders. they have the experience that we can learn from. it can go a long way if the right person hears it.
