As you can tell, these were made from antler tines.

Very nice; probably very HC as well! I'm sure that "back in the day" that was what many used.

I like those Mazo,  especially the last two Eagle ones.

I made this one a couple few years ago.  I use it with my Plains Rifle.

Mike, that is really nice! I know Scooby made some nice ones too. Anyone heard from him lately?

Scooby had some internet problems.   I doubt he will be back.

Thanks Mike, I knew he was having problems, but thought he would be back soon. Guess I'll have to call him.

Just a bit huh? I imagine a lot of men back in the day carved such as these to pass the time.

That would be a very sad thing. Scooby is sorely missed around here.
