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

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

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

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

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..

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

Big Dog : Good luck to that chap. He is the kind that lifted us out of the cave. .

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.

Harry Ballzac : that's awesome, the sinew part reminds me of fiber glassing, the old school way. lol

star lover : Did anyone else notice how his hands were bleeding while tillering the bow???

Watson Watson : maybe it was the genocide of First Nations and destruction of their culture that caused this technique to be lost...

Frank Leipner : Great stuff, thanks for sharing!

William Blakeley : GOOD OLD BOY 👍👍

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.

so steve : great history thanks for sharing

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


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.
